Overview

The Spring Writers Retreat is a self-directed program that offers time and space for writers to retreat, reconnect, and re-energize their writing practice. In addition to a single room, which doubles as your private studio, you will be surrounded by a community of artistic peers. You will have the opportunity to attend inspiring talks and performances and meet with guest faculty to consult on your work.

What does the program offer?

This self-directed residency offers the opportunity to work away from the constraints of everyday life. Delve deep into your creative project and take advantage of the artistic community around you. Writing circles, formal and informal lectures, and opportunities to workshop your project will be provided. Take advantage of Banff National Park's natural environment and ignite your senses by signing up for various hikes and day trips offered through our Participant Resources department.

Participants can request to extend their stay. Mentorship will not be offered during extended stays. These requests will be approved based on availability of accommodation (additional fees will apply).

Who should apply? 

Writers in all creative genres are invited to apply. The program is designed for emerging and established writers with a proven publication record seeking a period of dedicated time to work on a project in any genre.

We welcome writers from all backgrounds, and all gender identities and expressions.
