Registration opens April 1st, 2021
The WCYR is proud to announce our second writers’ conference. This weekend event will bring together writers from all over York Region and beyond, along with guest speakers, editors, and publishers.
This year, our illustrious Keynote Speaker is the famed thriller writer Andrew Pyper. He will be speaking at the conference on Saturday over our extended lunch break. So pour yourself a glass of bubbly, slide your charcuterie board over beside the computer, relax and take it all in.
Back by popular demand, we’d like to welcome Terry Fallis as the conference’s Honorary Patron. Terry will be giving the Opening Address on Friday evening in order to welcome all of our attendees, volunteers, and speakers.
Details are still being worked out for this virtual event, but check back regularly. Here’s what’s happening so far:
Save the Date: October 22-24, 2021
