Part-time, online The Writer’s Studio Online
Study creative writing online at SFU
The Writer's Studio Online is a new creative writing program designed for those who live outside Vancouver. You have the option of either taking the course completely online or through blended learning in Whistler, B.C.
Option 1: 100% Online
The 10-month program takes place entirely on the web, allowing you to experience the same award-winning Writer's Studio method from home—wherever that may be.
Option 2: Attend workshops in Whistler
Starting fall 2016, you can combine your online learning with face-to-face workshops in Whistler. This new option allows you to complete your coursework online but meet your classmates and mentor in person at regular workshops.
Join a community of writers
We take a multi-faceted, communal approach to writing that we believe is far more effective—and far more organic—than simply reading and submitting writing assignments online. In addition to taking online creative writing courses, you'll develop your writing through screen-to-screen, live and interactive writing workshops. If you've been writing on your own, but long to connect with other writers and learn under a literary mentor, this is the program for you. After you complete the program, you'll graduate with a Creative Writing Certificate.
Focus on a genre with a mentor
You will join a genre group of up to eight writers with whom you'll workshop your writing. Each group will have an accomplished mentor, who, in addition to facilitating workshops, will work with you one-on-one to develop your personal writing practice.
You'll study one of these genres:
- Narrative non-fiction
- Poetry and lyric prose
- Speculative fiction and writing for young adults
