RoundTable Makeover? New name. New menu. New venue. A whole new look!

Monthly Network Meeting (formerly RoundTable)

Please note there have been changes to the Monthly Network Meeting (RoundTable) venue within the Centre for Food, starting time and breakfast format/prices.

The Monthly Network Meeting (RoundTable) will now be held in Bistro ’67 (turn right when you step off the elevator and go to the end of the hall). The meeting will start at 9 a.m., but feel free to arrive as early as 8:30 a.m. A continental breakfast which will include gluten-free items will now be served. Prices have been reduced (see below).

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 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 a delicious continental breakfast. The Monthly Network Meeting (RoundTable) starts at 9:00 am
