What do past attendees say about CanWrite conferences?


My times at CanWrite! conferences have been exciting, positive, and rewarding. The atmosphere is conducive to writing, the classes and workshops are first class.

In particular, a master class kept me on track with my most recent novel, and a social media workshop energized my marketing efforts. —Robert W. Mackay

I learned so much at this conference! Nearly a year later, I’m still working to implement all of the helpful things I learned, from podcasting to promotion to trying new genres. My days at the conference even spawned the idea for an entire series I’ve already begun to write. It was a phenomenal opportunity to meet other writers and learn from the pros. —Vanessa Ricci-Thode


I love meeting writers from other parts of the country! (unsigned)


I was hooked after my first CanWrite experience. Top quality workshops and programming in an intimate setting with hands-on access to agents, publishers, and award-winning authors. With a great atmosphere and the camaraderie of sharing an amazing weekend with like-minded writers, what more could you ask for? —Cindy Watson


Good facilitators—well-rounded, knowledgeable, helpful, down-to-earth, and communicative. The organizers were friendly, helpful, energetic, hard-working and deserving of all the accolades – job well done! (unsigned)
