SFU Writing Consults

Are you looking for feedback on your writing? Free Writing Consults with The SFU Writer’s Studio are offered on the second Thursday evening of each month. This program offers free one-on-one consultations with alumni of the SFU Writer’s Studio, in partnership with New Westminster Public Library.

Writers from New Westminster and Greater Vancouver can sign up for a 45-minute, one-time, one-on-one consult with an editor who will provide specific feedback and recommendations based on your submitted work. The session can be in-person or online.

How does it work?

  • Consults will take place on the second Thursday evening of each month.
  • For each session, available times are 5pm, 6pm, and 7pm and are arranged by appointment only.
  • Appointments are 45 minutes in length
  • Appointments will be conducted either remotely online, via Zoom or in person at the library.
  • Your appointment time will be confirmed via NWPL. Once confirmed, you will be given information on next steps
  • You can submit up to seven pages of poetry or prose, 7 pages maximum. Work must be double-spaced with the title and your name on each page with the page number on the bottom.
  • Each person is eligible for one session only; multiple and/or repeat sessions cannot be booked.
  • Please note, confirmed registration is required at least 7 days prior to the consultation date. This is to ensure there is enough time to provide thoughtful feedback on the work submitted for review.
