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.
Health and Safety Update
The safety of our members is our highest priority. To that end, and in accordance with the Ontario Ministry of Health, Public Health Ontario and Durham Region, the WCDR has decided to take a virtual approach to all events until further notice.
All upcoming monthly networking meetings, masterclasses and special events will be hosted on Zoom to provide our members and guests with ongoing writing inspiration and support.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely. Please watch our Facebook page, The Buzz and our website for updates.
It is with deepest thanks and warmest regards that we celebrate this amazing milestone. Our community has been blessed with continued success because of the phenomenal talent and creative minds of our members. With your commitment to the writing craft and your support of the WCDR, we have been able to provide encouragement and guidance to so many over the past 25 years.
As we continue on this journey through these unprecedented times, it is more important than ever to keep our foundation strong. The path before us is uncertain, but we remain committed to providing you with opportunities for growth and development for many more years to come.
To help us start our celebration, we would love to hear you. Tell us what the WCDR means to you and how it has contributed to your writing, growth or to your life as a whole. We look forward to hearing from you and sharing in the heartfelt words and find memories.
Please email us your stories or comments. We hope to post these on the website throughout the year.
