Dedicated to the craft of writing
The Writers’ Community of Durham Region, affectionately called the WCDR, is a network of writers from all genres and all levels of writing, from creative to technical to business and journalistic writing, supporting each other through in-person meetings and a strong online community.
Though we began as an organization centred around Durham Region, the municipality located in the eastern Greater Toronto Area, our membership extends across the province of Ontario and the entire country of Canada. The WCDR welcomes all writing voices dedicated to the improvement of writing craft. The world needs your voice and the WCDR will give you the tools and confidence to share your creations outside of your desk drawer and hard drive.
WCDR Membership Benefits
It has been a tumultuous couple of years that has brought a lot of changes to the WCDR but the time has come to get back together and share our stories.
The WCDR is proud to announce that In-Person Monthly Network Meetings are once again happening! We are currently holding our monthly meetings at St Mark’s church in Whitby (click HERE for the address).
But we learned a lot during the pandemic and that is why we are pleased to offer Virtual attendance for anyone interested. Please sign up for our MNMs the way that you normally would and select your membership type and preference for In-Person or Virtual at the payment page.
And if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our Board.
We can’t wait to welcome everyone back, whether you can join us in-person or from the comfort of your own home.
