The Victoria Writers’ Society Summer E-Camp will run from
June 15 – August 10; with a wrap-up party one evening during the week of August 23-29th.
Up to ten writers in each of three genres (poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction) will have the opportunity to work on a one-on-one basis via email with a Writer-In-Residence in their chosen genre.
The Camp will go something like this:
June 15: participants will submit up to 10 pages (poets) or 3500 words (fiction and creative non-fiction writers) of their work to their respective Writers-In-Residence.
June 29: the W-I-Rs will return work to participants with thorough comments.
July 27: participants will return their revised work to their W-I-Rs (During the 4 weeks of revision time, participants will have the opportunity to correspond with their W-I-Rs via email)
August 10: W-I-Rs will return work to participants with comments.
Participants will then have time to make final touches to their work before the wrap-up party during the week of August 23-29, in which all participants will read from their work to one another.
