We’re excited to be able to return to Red Deer Polytechnic (formerly Red Deer College) again for WordsWorth 2023!
Immerse yourself in a community of creatives as you learn from professional authors and playwrights in a week-long series of workshops. And that’s only the beginning – world building, song writing, Dungeons & Dragons, campfire, bedtime stories, and more adventures await!
WordsWorth is a week-long sleepover creative writing residency for young writers who believe in the power of words. Writers will be completely immersed in the creative and diverse world of writing. Guided by established and respected artist-instructors, writers will experience writing through fiction, nonfiction, poetry, spoken word, music, and more. But the experiences don’t begin and end with the classes; WordsWorth is a place where young writers come together to celebrate writing through friendship, campfires, concerts, open mic sessions, hikes, haiku, and semi-competitive games outside of class.
Bursaries available from a donation by: LCM Foundation in memory of Joan Clark.

We can’t allow participants to come to WordsWorth without a health care number. If your form does not contain a health care number, we can’t save your spot until we get it.
- If your form has been received safely, you should get an automatic confirmation email. If your payment has gone through safely, you should get an automatic email receipt. If you don’t receive those messages and they are not in your spam folder, please let us know. If you did get the email and receipt then we definitely have your registration and payment, but if you don’t, one or both may not have gone through!
- Handbooks will be sent out closer to the camp start date, but if you need reference, the 2019 handbooks are available for viewing (Week One and Weeks Two and Three). Most details, including pick up and drop off times, are likely to be the same this year.
