It’s that time of the year again! The Ontario Writers’ Conference has opened its registration again in time for gift-giving for the writers on your list. Or, you know…if you should feel the need to treat yourself to an awesome gift.


Some of the OWC regulars at the 2015 conference. Once you start the OWC journey…you keep coming back. (-:

Sign up by DECEMBER 24th, and the regular conference rate of $260 drops to $229. SEE ALL THE RATES HERE. Don’t forget to check out their incredible add-ons while you’re on the rates page. There are agent pitch sessions, blue pencil sessions, Master Classes on the Friday afternoon, as well as the incredible yearly FESTIVAL OF AUTHORS gala! The Festival of Authors is an open-to-the-public event…you do not need to attend the conference to attend the Friday night gala.

Once again, I will be a Blue Pencil Manuscript Mentor this year. You can visit THIS PAGE TO SEE THE MANUSCRIPT MENTORS AND AGENTS available for Blue Pencil and Practice Pitch sessions.

Coming from OUT OF TOWN? The list of out of towners is certainly growing. Here’s the page regarding ACCOMMODATIONS.

There was a time when I was affiliated with the conference. I was once on its board of directors and planning committee. But for the past few years, I’ve been there only as a Blue Pencil Mentor and attendee. It’s a great conference…you really should check it out. HERE’S A LINK TO THE HOME PAGE. The conference takes place in Ajax, Ontario—APRIL 30th t0 MAY 1st.


Hope to see you there!
