Overview

The Mountain Writers Intensive is a three-week residency for nine writers working in any genre (fiction, nonfiction, journalism, or poetry), on mountain narratives, environmental journalism, stories of adventure, or projects with a theme of the human relationship to landscape. In the niche genre of Mountain Literature, the journey of self-exploration and the psychology of extreme endeavours are as much a focus as the physical accomplishments involved, and there is a strong emphasis on literary quality and development of narrative. 

Writers will enjoy dedicated, uninterrupted writing time in a spectacular mountain setting, and the communality of a small group of writing peers from around the world. This program overlaps with the world-renowned Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival where visiting authors, editors, agents or publishers will offer further enrichment and inspiration.

What does the program offer?

Writers will be encouraged to meet regularly with faculty and other writing participants to share work and projects for peer review. During the program, participants will take part in scheduled workshops with faculty and guest speakers, where participants will learn from experiences from other authors and share best practices.

The residency includes on-campus lodging and meals — all participants have to do is focus on their craft and soak up the inspiration.

Who should apply?

Writers in all genres — fiction, nonfiction, poetry, essay, history, biography, and memoir — are encouraged to apply. We welcome all writers (emerging and established), from all backgrounds, as well as gender identities and expressions.

*Scholarship of 100% is available and will be applied to cover tuition, and 50% is available to offset meals and accommodation costs.
