The Purple Stapler's Writers Forum is a bi-weekly workshop group that doesn't adhere to form or genre and places an emphasis on peer critique. As an interdisciplinary arts organization, we strongly believe quality feedback is not restricted to like minded writers and that sometimes we just need a new perspective.

This group is designed for writers that already have experience and/or a degree in creative writing. Please take some time to self evaluate your writing before attending.


The Writers Forum has convened over 20 workshops beginning in Fall 2015 most lead by UBC alumni Tristan Koster. 

To join the group please email Tristan at:

***An artist membership is required to participate in this workshop. You can become a member at the beginning of your first workshop or online here.
