It’s been a while since I’ve been on the Board of Directors for my beloved writing community, the Writers’ Community of Durham Region. No time like the present! I am now serving on the Board as their new Membership Coordinator. I look forward to another exciting year of writerly magic from the WCDR community!
If you live in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) and don’t yet know about this dynamic community, it’s time you did yourself a favour and checked them out. It’s really worth the drive to Durham Region to participate in all the events they have going on throughout the year. They’re just a short drive east of the city. Toronto residents are more than welcome to attend functions and become members.
While you’re here, let me tell you a bit about the upcoming WCDR MONTHLY NETWORK MEETING taking place in September! That’s SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 8TH. This meeting is open to anyone who wishes to attend. It’s great for networking and the guest speaker is always an industry professional offering up solid advice for writers of all levels. It takes place in Whitby, Ontario—right off the 401 Thickson Road off-ramp.
|TIME:||9:00 to 12:00 am|
|WHERE:||Durham College (Whitby Campus) 1610 Champlain Avenue, Whitby ON|
|WHO:||Everyone is welcome!|
|COST:||$15 members pre-paid; $17 guests and walk-ins $18|
It’s easy to register online and it will save you a couple of dollars if you do so. The guest for the September meeting is HEATHER TUCKER. Heather’s book THE CLAY GIRL released in 2016 to critical acclaim. It’s a brilliant addition to the CanLit landscape. Heather is a tour-de-force with a long list of awards to her name. She’s going to be speaking at the September meeting under the topic Sparking Creativity Through Play (Click the link for a full description). We hope to see you there!
I look forward to the upcoming year on the Board of Directors. If ever you have questions regarding this great organization–of which I’ve been a part of since 2003–please feel free to contact me through my Contact Me page here, or directly through the contact form on the WCDR website. Check the organization out! I promise, you’ll love them as much as I do.
