Exciting News from the Organising Committee!

Although there will be no competition in 2024, the Organizing Committee has not been idle. 

Instead, we have been planning to once again offer writing workshops so that we can continue to support and inspire writers while we’re on hiatus. 

The workshops will include individual topics and, for the first time, a 10-part workshop series, based on Ursula K. Le Guin’s book, Steering the Craft

Also, for the first time, all of our workshops will be given online so that they are even more accessible. 

To be able to provide these workshops, especially in a non-competition year, we are forced for the first time to charge a nominal fee for the workshops. We regret this necessity but are confident that our workshop are worth this minor cost.

To see the full slate of workshops and to register, please go to our workshops page.

We wish you happy writing in 2024!

Our Writing Workshops

For those of you who haven’t attended one of the writing workshops we’ve offered over the years, they are designed to give your writing a little boost and help you to get a head start on your story for the competition.  They are geared towards adults, whether native or non-native speakers, and are meant to teach, guide, and inspire you, the writer.  The schedule for this year’s workshops will be announced by the beginning of 2024.
