The Writers Guild of Alberta hosts their AGM in conjunction with a writer's conference each year.
The 2013 Words in 3 Dimensions Conference has passed. Stay tuned in the spring of 2014 for information on our next conference.
WORDS IN 3 DIMENSIONS CONFERENCE:
LEARN. NETWORK. CONNECT.
Hosted by the Get Publishing Communications Society, Writers’ Guild of Alberta and Editors’ Association of Canada–Prairie Provinces Branch, Words in 3 Dimensions offers 3 stimulating days of learning, networking and connecting. Conference attendees will learn, be challenged and be inspired through a variety of sessions and workshops, such as building a writing portfolio, writing children’s picture books, publicity in a 3D world, genres within fiction writing, young adult writing and copyright in a post-Bill C-11 Canada. Attendees can make connections at Pitch Camp, pitching ideas directly to editors, publishers and agents. A Blue Pencil Café for personal consultations with established writers or editors about works in progress or advice on getting published is also available.
