Thank you to all of our conference participants, presenters, Virtual Writers-in-Residence, board members and staff for helping to put on a great virtual conference Oct 22-24, 2020! We’re thankful for all of your hard work and engagement.


A few conference events were recorded; you can find videos of both the Q&A with Helen Knott and Kerry Benjoe, as well as Trevor Cole’s Caroline Heath Memorial Lecture, on the SWG’s Facebook page. Registered participants will receive a recording of Joan Marie Galat’s "Rock Your Online Reading" webinar.


Our Small Talks videos will be available to registered participants until November 25; we hope you enjoy taking time with them.


Our silent auction raised $832; a big thank you to all who bid on items. Your support helps us continue to put on great programming.


Our writers depend on readers! Thank you to everyone who has purchased or tracked down a copy of our presenters’ work through our Virtual Book Table or your favourite bookseller.


During the first virtual SWG Annual General meeting, a new President - Ashley Martin - and four new Board Members - Joy Brown, Dirck de Lint, Margot Johnson, and Heather Winter - were elected to the Board
