Women’s Words

Women’s Words Summer Writing Week is a program for women with stories: all women, in other words, both established and new writers. Work in small, interactive groups with published writers and award-winning authors. Come for a day or two, for the weekend(s), or the entire week to explore poetry, life-writing, fiction, and creative nonfiction.

Women’s Words is taking a year-long reading break (resumes in 2015).

After celebrating our 20th anniversary last year (including the publication of a commemorative anthology), the team behind the University of Alberta’s Women’s Words writing program is taking stock of our successes to date and planning how to broaden the audience and the scope of this award-winning program.

We hope you will continue your writing throughout the next year and that you will join us for Women’s Words 2015.

In the meantime, you might want to consider other writing and editing courses available through the Faculty of Extension:
