VAN Programs

 

Canadian Authors–Metro Vancouver (Including Victoria) 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 Vancouver writers gather 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.

Vancouver Events include monthly meetings with guest speakers, workshops and special presentations, member’s socials and writers conferences. Subscribe to Metro Vancouver’s newsletter for updates.

Victoria Events include guest speakers, open mic sessions, and meet and greet events. Dates and locations vary. Subscribe to Victoria’s newsletter for updates.
