The Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild is seeking proposals for online professional development workshops to offer starting September 2021. We are looking for ideas and facilitators who are willing and comfortable using Zoom to offer workshops on the craft or business of writing. We are planning for virtual workshops; however, some in-person workshops might be a possibility in the next year depending on COVID-19 restrictions.
The SWG’s Professional Development workshop series focuses on the craft and business of writing. Its goal is to offer skill development for beginning or emerging writers by established writers from a diversity of genres and backgrounds. Our online workshops will range in length from 2 hours to a series of up to four 2-hr workshops (max 8 hours of instructions). The number of participants may range from 8-16 people.
In some cases, we may offer 75-minute webinar presentations with unlimited participants.
We invite proposals for online presentations that address:
Preference will be given to proposals that fit the goals of the professional development workshops and are offered by writers residing in Saskatchewan who are representative of a diversity of ideas and identities. The SWG reserves the right to reject any proposal.
