LitFest New West call for workshop proposals, 2015

LitFest New West has issued a call for workshop proposals for the 2015 festival, which is set to run on Saturday, April 25 at Douglas College.

Twelve workshops will be selected to run in one-hour slots between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. that day.

See more at the New West Record website.

According to the article, the deadline for proposals is February 28th, so you don’t have too long. However,I think if you were to register an interest by sending an email to outlining your proposal by the deadline and then send the completed proposal a couple of days later, then that might just be OK. The deadline has been extended once already, which indicates there hasn’t been an overwhelming response as yet.
