For over 30 years, the New Shoots Program has provided creative writing workshops to youth in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Co-created by the University of British Columbia’s Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing Program (MFA CRWR) and the Vancouver School Board (VSB), New Shoots places current MFA students in high school classes to teach the craft of creative writing.

To see the incredible work we do, please watch this short video:

At the end of the school year, New Shoots publishes an anthology of student work from secondary schools across the Vancouver School Board.
