2018 Spring Poetry Colloquium Deadline Extended!

Led by Sylvia Legris


We’re excited that in 2018, the Poetry Colloquium will be held where it began in the early ‘90’s -- at St. Peter’s College in peaceful Muenster, Saskatchewan.  A perfect location to complete that poetry manuscript you’ve been working on.

Instruction occurs within an intensive, deep-immersion setting over a relaxed 14 days, with an emphasis on individual writing and manuscript revision. Writers will benefit from individual manuscript consultations, as well as seminar discussions investigating technical, philosophical, or conceptual issues in contemporary poetry.

Scholarships and bursaries are available to applicants.
