Thanks to the Canadian Authors Association!

From Wednesday evening last week and through the weekend, the Canadian Authors Association hosted CanWrite! 2013. It’s the kind of event every writer should have an opportunity to experience from time to time.

Writers attended from across Canada: networking, exchanging ideas, writing together, chatting, debating, empathizing, laughing. All good stuff.

As well as challenging and informative workshops and panel discussions, there were opportunities to meet with stellar representatives from the publishing world, among them, Christie Harkin, Halli Villegas, Sam Hiyate, Anita Chong, and Carly Watters!

Click here to see a complete list of all presenters and panelists. For a more detailed post about some of these workshops and discussions, hop on over to my friend Patricia Caviglia’s blog. I’ve got to get back to my WIP!

Here’s the fabulous poster from this year’s conference. Be sure to watch for CanWrite!2014 which will once again be held in June in Orillia, ON. I’ll let you know as soon as I know the date. Put a reminder in your calendar now!

Patricia Sands lives in Toronto, Canada when she isn't somewhere else, particularly the south of France. With a happily blended family of seven adult children and, at last count, six grandchildren, life is full and time is short. Beginning with her first Kodak Brownie camera at the age of six, she has told stories all of her life through photography. Much to her surprise a few years ago, she began to write and has now published three novels, including two that are part of a six-book series set in the south of France. Love France? Love her work! Check out her website www.patriciasandsauthor.com She is particularly drawn to the rewarding friendships of women and the challenges many embrace once their families are grown. "It's never too late to begin something new," she enthuses. "As the saying goes, just do it!"

  1. Any of these conferences are very good for authors to attend. They give us the encouragement and motivation to keep writing. I’ve attended the Surrey International Writers Conference af ew times and always came away pumped to write more!

  2. Sounds like a terrific writers event. I have not been to any yet but might try to attend one in the future. I’m still a newbie!

  3. Sounds like great fun. I’ve only attend one writing conference here in the states, and longing to find another one. I can relate to that feeling. Something about other writers energy bouncing off the walls. You can’t help but be affected.

It's always good to hear to from you!
