Early Bird Tuition closes April 28 for writers’ workshops

The St. Eugene Writers Workshops early bird tuition rates end on April 28.

Columbia Basin Trust is sponsoring 10 half-tuition scholarships to a three-day St. Eugene Writing Workshops running May 10-12, at St. Eugene Resort.

The St. Eugene Writing Workshops are modelled after MFA workshops and offer writers the opportunity to participate in a critical examination of their writing in a non-academic environment. The intensive writing workshops are led by award winning authors. These are the only workshops of this sort in B.C.
