Looking to kick-start your next writing project? Connect with like-minded writers and get expert feedback from established authors and publishing professionals in our Summer Workshop in Creative Writing. The workshop runs from July 7 to 12, 2019, at Humber’s scenic Lakeshore Campus in Toronto.
“Whether you're interested in writing thrillers, satire, memoir, Y/A, poetry or literary fiction, the 2019 Humber School for Writers Summer Workshop brings together some of the best practitioners to enlighten and inspire,” says David Bezmozgis, director of the School, describing the workshop program. “It promises, as always, to be a remarkable week.
The lineup of 2019 workshop mentors is particularly accomplished. Led by Ben Fountain, a National Book Critics’ Circle Award winner in the United States and this year’s Timothy Findley Visiting Chair in Creative Writing, the team’s collective accolades include Arthur Ellis, Trillium, Commonwealth, and Journey Prize wins, as well as nominations for Giller, Hilary Weston Writers' Trust, and Pulitzer Prizes. The mentors include Workshop veterans Kyo Maclear, Colin McAdam, Olive Senior, and Alissa York, as well as Giles Blunt, a long-time mentor in the School for Writers’ graduate certificate program, and writer/translator/painter Michelle Winters.
The workshop consists of Sunday publishing panels and a reception, five weekday classes, and afternoon lectures. Writers who apply by June 7, 2019 are eligible for the early bird tuition rate.
