This opportunity is open to all emerging and aspiring authors living in Canada who have not yet published a full-length book or had a professional production. We especially encourage participation from underrepresented groups.

As authors and educators, we are committed to creating a safe and inclusive space for writers to share their questions, comments, and ideas. We expect all event participants to be respectful of each other and to express ideas and opinions in a polite and constructive manner. Anyone not adhering to this will be removed from our virtual meeting space.
