Sage Hill is thrilled to be offering a fiction colloquium this spring!

The Fiction Colloquium is a facilitated retreat for writers who have acquired and moved beyond basic skills in short or long fiction, who have published at least one book of fiction or the equivalent in periodicals, and who seek further development.

The course offers a small group context and is limited to 8 participants. The focus will be on individual manuscript consultations and on group discussions dealing with technical, philosophical or conceptual issues in contemporary fiction. Instruction occurs within a deep-immersion setting over a relaxed 14 days, with an emphasis on individual writing and manuscript revision.


Facilitated by Elizabeth Philips
