Canadian Authors–Metro Vancouver Branch Programs

In addition to these local programs, there are a number of programs and services offered by the national organization which are available to all members.

Writers’ Circles A group of writers gathers on a regular basis to support each other in the writing process. It is a way to stay focused and get helpful feedback, with the goal of helping the writer improve the written material, including both constructive criticism and warranted praise.

Writer-In-Residence Need expert help with your manuscript? Bernice Lever will edit and evaluate for markets on the first 20 pages of your manuscript. She’s a former editor with the Dundurn Group, the author of 11 poetry and a few non-fiction prose books, a winner of several awards and is a Life Member of Canadian Authors.
