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.
