The WCDR is proud and delighted to announce the birth of twins!

York Region and Simcoe County have both embarked on starting Writers’ Communities of their own .

On March 25th, President James Dewar and Past President Sue Reynolds met with a group of writers in Aurora to talk about the possibility of a Writers’ Community of York Region. A number of current and previous WCDR members were also on hand (Cheryl Andrews, Hyacinthe Miller, Mary McIntyre, Ruth Zaryski Jackson, Sue Iaboni [formerly Sue Eaman], Janis McCallen, Clare Bolton, Christine Barbetta, Heather Anne Lambert) and by the end of the meeting a group of enthusiastic souls had formed a committee to move the new organization forward.

WCDR’s RAW coordinator Noelle Bickle was on hand for that meeting and has approached us about starting a Writers’ Community of Simcoe County in the Barrie/Orillia area. She’s already got a website up, booked a hall and scheduled the first meeting for the evening of May 12th.

If you know of writers to the west of us or to the north of us who have been pining for their own group of dedicated and supportive writing colleagues, please have them contact the appropriate group through the contact forms below, or click on the logos to the right to go to the individual groups’ websites.
