When you join a writing circle, you join a cohort of writers who are looking to improve their craft and process while creating accountability. Writing circles allow writers to share ideas and questions with each other in a safe and supportive environment. The writing circle is not a place for critique, rather it's a place to help writers in reaching their goals.
This is a hybrid program which meets in-person at the Community Commons located at Central Library and online through Zoom. To register to attend online visit the links below:

Writer in Residence
Pam Bustin is a writer, performer, story-tender, and the award-winning author of the novel Mostly Happy, the stage plays Saddles in the Rain, The Passage of Georgia O’Keefe and barefoot, and the CBC Radio dramas Coffee in Lloyd, The White Car Project, and Talking with the Dead. She was born in Regina and raised in a host of small towns across the prairies. For the last ten years, she’s lived mostly in Chapleau Ontario with a lovely man and 10,001 books.
She served as the Saskatoon Programs coordinator for the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild and sat on the board and dramaturgical committee of the Saskatchewan Playwrights’ Centre. She has sorely missed the comradery and depth of talent in the Saskatchewan writing community and is thrilled to be returning to Regina and to one of her favourite libraries to serve as Writer in Residence.
Whether you yearn to take the first step towards developing a writing practice, are starting a new story, or find yourself lost in the woods with a book that you fear you will never finish, Pam would love to accompany you for a time on your journey.
