Monthly Network Meeting (formerly RoundTable)

Please note that the deadline to register for Monthly Network Meetings has changed and is now 9 a.m. on the Monday prior to the meeting.

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 Monthly Network Meeting (RoundTable) at the Centre For Food, Durham College. At almost every meeting, we feature a speaker from within the industry—an author, a publisher, an agent—and a Mini-Workshop that drills a little deeper into the topic. We love everything this meeting encompasses: writing, books, book sales, contests, raffles, workshops, announcements, speakers, celebrations, networking, blue pencils…and a delicious snack to keep your early morning energy levels up.
