More Than Just a Breakfast!

The WCDR is truly a writers’ community! Our events, resources, networking and mostly our members are what makes us great.

Every month we celebrate this fabulous community with a RoundTable meeting at Centre For Food, Durham College and we love everything that encompasses: writing, books, sales, contests, raffles, workshops, announcements, speakers, celebrations, networking, workshops, blue pencils….and breakfast. The RoundTable meeting starts at 8:30 am

Durham College, Centre for Food
1604 Champlain Avenue, Whitby ON
