Category: Sudbury Writers’ Guild Events
Hope everyone has had a productive and refreshing summer. We’re ready to get back to our full fall schedule at the Sudbury Writer’s Guild. 2017 marks our 25th year as group where local writers can get together to help each other further their writing goals.
At the end of last season we explored some new venues to host our ever expanding group and are happy to announce that College Boreal will be our new monthly meeting location. The classroom may change from time to time as availability changes, but for the fall season we will be meeting in Room M3340 on the 3rd floor.
We’ll be updating our ABOUT page shortly to include new directions.
Below are a number of local literary events/meetings including our own Guild Meeting happening over the next few months. Please come out and support local writers/voices. If you have information about other local events happening, please let us know. We’d be happy to share them here.

Our first meeting of the fall is typically busy with members renewing memberships and planning of the upcoming season.

I’m very sorry to break the following news. Just minutes ago, Gail Anderson-Dargatz emailed me to tell me that a family member is in emergency at the hospital, and because of health concerns, she can’t leave B.C. and travel across Canada. She is very sad and so sorry to have to cancel the June 24th event.
