|Description:||Whether you’re interested in taking individual courses or pursuing a creative writing diploma/degree, Selkirk College is the place to be. Join Almeda Glenn Miller and Leesa Dean, the program’s core faculty, as well as guest speakers and visiting writers who will take you on an exciting journey designed to immerse you in creative processes and help you find your voice. Our Creative Writing classes are fully transferable to universities across Canada. We’ll help set you up for success at a larger University for your third and fourth year of a degree program.
What defines our creative writing program is a community of writers created by small class sizes and intimate workshops. Students gain confidence in communicating their ideas imaginatively in a truly magical setting. Imagine sitting by the confluence of the Kootenay and Columbia Rivers to draft a poem, or walking along the Castlegar campus trails - a significant gathering place for Indigenous peoples - to conjure the final scene in your short story. In Nelson, classes are held at the KSA campus, a true artists’ paradise where literary and studio arts cross-pollinate. Situated in one of the most beautiful regions on earth, Selkirk College offers a safe, peaceful and vibrant sense of place for writers to explore their imaginations in fiction, non-fiction, poetry and drama. We’ll help you navigate the geography of writing in the world today.
