Welcome to the 2015 Words in 3D Conference: Intersections.

Words in 3D is back for 2015! Join us for the second edition of the unique conference that connects writers, editors, publishers, and agents from across Canada. The weekend focuses on how and where your work with words intersects with other disciplines. Professional development and networking are crucial components of the event, of course, but so are creativity and community. Bring along your energy and your enthusiasm and see where the road takes you.

Our programming committee is proud to announce this year’s schedule. Check out the exciting keynotes, sessions, and events that make Words in 3D 2015: Intersections a destination that offers something for everyone. Come for the weekend or come for a day.


Words in 3D is the only conference that gives you the full industry map—where writing, editing, and publishing intersect and interact. Put yourself at the centre of writerly expertise. Get revved up by inspirational keynote speakers. Break through roadblocks with intensive pre-conference workshops. Find a new path to your potential with diverse conference sessions, Pitch Camp and one-on-one mentorship at the Blue Pencil Café.


Join us for Words in 3D 2015: Intersections to drive your career forward—and enjoy the ride with your peers.
