Alumni from the UBC Creative Writing program are spread all around the world. We have large numbers of alumni in major cities across Canada and what we are looking for now are volunteers to become the official representatives in all of these places.

As a representative of the alumni association you would help to organize alumni readings, gatherings, personal development days, and hopefully act a contact person for alumni in your city. We envision monthly hangouts that alumni are invited to casually drop in at, a section on the forum for alumni in one city to spread the word about upcoming literary events, and really whatever you can envision.

We want to encourage alumni to help foster that feeling of community most of us felt while we were in the program and to keep it growing and going.

If you feel like this is something you would be interested in please email us at
