2021-2023 PCWC Four Centres Emerging Writers Program – Meet our Writers

We were overwhelmed by the skill of the applications for the Four Centres Emerging Writers Program, and it was a tough decision to have to choose 12 standout writers from the applications we received.

But it had to be done, and we are now happy to reveal the lucky writers who were given a spot on our second run of the successful Emerging Writers Program.

We look forward to seeing what these 12 up-and-coming writers will achieve in the next two years.

Our Regular Writing Groups

PCWC now has two groups on offer for writers to attend each month:

Our First Draft Group meets on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month from 1 to 4 pm. The group provides the opportunity for writers to share a piece of writing to receive feedback from peers in the group. For further details and dates, see: First Draft Group

The Centre also offers a Monthly Write-in Group on the second Saturday of the month from 10 am to 12 noon. The focus of this group is to provide the space for writers to meet and capture words on the page. Writing prompts can be provided, if needed. There is no sharing of work or feedback offered in the group. For further details and dates, see: Monthly Write-in Group
