Event Update

The University of Guelph’s Writers Workshop is returning from hiatus for its 7th year of operation.

This upcoming Writers Workshop 2018 will be held on the weekend of Saturday, March 3rd and Sunday, March 4th, 2018.

What is the Writers Workshop?

The annual Writers Workshop at the University of Guelph Library hosts over 20 different writing workshops, taught by award-winning fiction writers, magazine writers, food and travel writers, social media and digital communication professionals, scientists, technical writers, and academic writing experts. At our 2016 event, we had approximately 1000 university-affiliated and community attendees, up 42% from 2015.

This 2-day event is FREE for everyone, including the greater Guelph community.
