2023 Sage Hill Writing Courses

In 2023, Sage Hill is offering a new and improved course structure throughout the spring and summer. The aim is to continue to accommodate folks who prefer the accessibility of online courses while offering a few more courses in-person within a safe context. Each class unit will be completely online or entirely in-person so that participants can focus on their writing in a unified context. Sage Hill’s 2023 Fiction Course will be offered in-person in May 2023. This change will keep gathering sizes small in both the spring and summer months.
