Stay Tuned for News from the Organising Committee!

Our first ever workshop series, based on Ursula K. Le Guin’s book, Steering the Craft is now over. Thanks to all of you who participated in these workshops. And thanks to our workshop leader, Hal D’Arpini, for donating his time and effort to bring it to you.

The Organising Committee will soon decide the direction of the competition, including whether to offer more workshops. Check back here for the latest news or join our mailing list.  

Above all, we urge you to keep writing, to explore the many outlets for your writing, and to continue to work on your craft so that your writing truly reflects the writer within you.

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.
