  • Complete a final check-in

You can use this session for any type of writing: course assignments, academic papers, cover letters, creative writing, emails, or anything else on your to-do list.

Indigenous Storyteller in Residence

In partnership with the Saskatoon Public Library, the University of Saskatchewan is proud to present Indigenous Storyteller in Residence, Zoey Roy. Join Zoey every Thursday evening to write original poems, prose, or songs that participants will perform as a part of a collective for Indigenous Achievement Week. Each week, Zoey will focus on expanding your toolkit of knowledge and techniques to feel comfortable sharing your work with a public performance. Sessions will take place on ZOOM with an expectation for people to actively participate as the nature of the sessions are intimate. The sessions are open to everyone and have no cost. The final performance is not mandatory and all the work that is created in the session remains the intellectual property of the author.
