Participants read the submissions of fellow group members, then give and receive feedback during three-hour morning workshops. Afternoons are devoted to writing time and to meeting one-on-one with faculty. An energizing, transformative experience designed to help participants take their writing to a new level, this program is a perfect entry point into Banff Centre’s full suite of Literary Arts programs.
