The Writers’ Community of Durham Region
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
To ensure the health and safety of our WCDR members and guests, the WCDR Board has canceled the MNM scheduled for April 4. We are also postponing the ‘Find and Fix Editing’ Masterclass on March 29 and the ‘Marketing 102 – Independent Publishing’ Masterclass on April 18. Anyone who has registered for the April MNM or the Masterclasses will receive a refund.
We will monitor the situation closely and assess the best course of action for all of our members. Please watch our Facebook page, The Buzz and our website for more information.
Welcome to our new site. Check out the help pages on How to Register/Login and on Paying Online for an event.
Members from the old site need to register again to the new site. Your membership will be validated behind the scenes and the status upgraded to an active ‘member.’ It may take two to five business days.
Have you ever wondered about writing for film or TV? Listen to our expert panel tell you about the world of screenwriting. Bring your questions. Plan on being at the MNM on March 7th!
There is always something going on at the WCDR. Whether you are looking for networking, classes, advice or just some fun with other writers, the WCDR has an event for you.
