Teaching & Mentoring

Going Under the Words

This May 18-23, 2018,  I will again be  leading Going Under the Words: Writing Fiction and Memoir, a five-day intensive writing workshop at Hollyhock Retreat Centre on Cortes Island. Information is now available from Hollyhock, or contact me directly. If you register before December, you will receive a 10 percent early-bird discount. Please note: scholarships are available. This is an intensive workshop, in a stunning and inspiring location.  Writers need to send in 10 pages of fiction — short story, novel or memoir — at least two weeks in advance.

Here are a few responses to last year’s sold-out course:

“Shaena Lambert is outstanding generous accessible. Subtantial value packed into five days. Thank you!” — Oriane Lee Johnston.

“Shaena is great — so knowledgeable, gracious, and full of honed tools to offer. Her incisive writing carries over into incisive teaching.” — Carrie Saxifrage.

“Shaena was a fantastic facilitatro who gave %120 and what she gave was really valuable on a personal and professional level.”

“A marvellous setting, scrumptious food, and inspiring program. Shaena is brilliant, creative, organized and insightful.”

“Writing and Hollyhock are the perfect combination.” — Alison Brewin

“Shaena Lambert prepared and delivered, and invested enormously in our work. She facilitated our learning deeply, and we created a tight community in our five days together.” — James Leslie


Fiction and Memoir Writing Boot Camp


This January, 2018, I will teach a Fiction and Memoir Writing Boot Camp as part of the Writers’ Studio of Simon Fraser University. It is a two-day course, over two Saturdays, with a lot of intensive writing between the two weekends. It’s a great way to get your writing muscles working , and to get the new year off to a great start, making deep work on a manuscript. More information to come soon from The Writers’ Studio.
