A writing circle consists of a group of writers who are interested in sharing their drafts, and giving and receiving support and feedback.

The Toronto branch plans to launch several new writing/critiquing circles around the GTA. These will be safe environments where members of Canadian Authors – Toronto can meet to exchange drafts and receive peer critiques and encouragement.

The first group will begin in December and will meet at the Centre for Social Innovation (CSI) Regent Park at 585 Dundas St. East. Any member of Canadian Authors – Toronto may join the group, up to a total of 10 members per group. We are looking for members of the association to launch and moderate writing/critiquing circles in other parts of the GTA.

Please contact co-president Lee Parpart at TOpresident1@canadianauthors.org for more information or to offer your services as a moderator.

Hope to see you soon!

Regent Park Writing Circle

All meetings of the new Regent Park Writing Circle will be held at the Centre for Social Innovation (CSI) Regent Park, 585 Dundas St. East, Toronto, at least until May 2019, when we will reassess our location. We’re aiming for the second Thursday of each month, but will move the date around to avoid holidays (hence the Feb. 7 date, instead of Feb. 14). The circle will be moderated by Canadian Authors –Toronto co-president, Lee Parpart.
