SAGE Statement on Colloquium

Due to the low faculty (academic and creative) turnout at this year’s annual colloquium, SAGE and the Colloquium Committee voiced their disappointment to the faculty during the last department meeting. We have posted the letter on our website. We are looking for suggestions, not just from faculty but also from the cohort, on how to improve faculty participation at SAGE and Colloquium events.

Web updates

SAGE has posted the 2015 Council Meetings on our website.

We have also posted the Coffee Talk resources and information on our website, including the handouts for “Working at CEGEP” and “Creative Writing Grants How to.”

For graduate students in the creative stream, we’ve put up deadlines and thesis information.

Concordia Write Nights

Concordia Write Nights is going strong and entering the final weeks of its inaugural run! To catch one of our final Winter 2015 write-ins or workshops, check out our Facebook group or website.

Concordia Write Nights’s end of year reading will take place in April (more information soon). If you would like to read some of your work at the reading, please email concordiawritenights@gmail.com. Watch the SAGE website and CWN’s Facebook group for more information on our reading night as it becomes available.

Best,

SAGE Council
