The Writers’ Community of Simcoe County is a sister organization to the Writers’ Community of Durham Region (a community of almost 400 members strong). We are a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging and promoting the art and skill of writing. We foster literacy, and provide moral support to writers through education and networking, both independently and in co-operation with existing organizations.

Whether you are a fiction or non-fiction writer, poet, playwright, screenwriter, songwriter, editor, or someone who just loves the way words connect, you’ll find yourself at home at a WCSC breakfast or other sponsored event.

New members are always welcome, including those who are just starting to explore their interest in writing. Current members include novices, award-winning and published writers and poets, editors, illustrators and songwriters. Whatever your interest, we hope you come check us out to see what’s happening with The Writers’ Community of Simcoe County.

We’re also seeking energetic folks with a variety of skills, life experiences and interests, to work as volunteers. Bring your organizational and networking expertise and to help chart the future of WCSC!

Our door is always open.

Marnie Woodrow

There's No Such Thing As Writer's Block: How NOT to Make it Through the Rough Patches

Marnie Woodrow: will be speaking about writer's block and how NOT to make it through rough patches. It took Marnie 13 years to complete her second novel, and yet she does not believe in writer's block. You need to come and hear about her reasons, as to why not.

During the optional workshop, "Minor to Major: Why Your *Minor* Characters Deserve Your Attention", Marnie will discuss what happens when we're drafting a short story, play or novel, and the main characters get LOTS of focus and attention. This workshop is a hands-on exploration of characters you *might* want to take a closer look at because in actual fact, they are running the show.
