Overview
Banff Centre’s Summer Writers residency will provide writers space for the creative exploration of their writing practice. 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 of your peers around you.

The program provides optional opportunities for consultations with mentors, public readings, and group sessions led by guest mentors that allow creators to explore techniques, aspects, and devices that you may find useful in your practice.

What does the program offer?
This two-week residency provides teaching from faculty members and professional guests, Q&A sessions, public events, and one-on-one workshopping. Mentors will discuss ideas, experiences, and obstacles that participants may be encountering with their writing. 

This residency is a self-directed program that offers time and space for writers to focus, reconnect, and re-energize their writing practice. In addition to a single room, and a small 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.

As a flexible self-guided program, the Summer Writers residency allows you to choose the amount of support you are looking for. All program elements are optional.

Who should apply? 
We welcome writers of all ages, backgrounds, and all gender identities and expressions. 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.

"Courage is not the lack of fear. It is acting in spite of it." -Mark Twain

When you think of having courage, or being courageous, do you think of yourself? Who do you think of? We all have courage. We have courage to put ourselves out there, and whether or not people will accept us is not up to us. We have courage to put our art out there, even if no one will ever see it.

Every moment of every day we experience discomfort. Some chose to avoid it, others are forced to push through and carry on. Courage is getting up in the morning, even when you want to stay in bed. Courage is telling yourself you are not defined by your past or what has happened to you. You define yourself. Show us the things that give you courage and inspire you to be more courageous through your art.

  • Flash Fiction / 1,000 words
