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.
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.

Plan on being at the MNM on February 8th! It will be a fun, interactive meeting aimed at giving members quality feedback about their work-in-progress. Each group will be facilitated by an expert mentor. Submit your work for feedback or simply observe. It’s up to you, no pressure. Participating in any way in the critiquing process will strengthen your writing and give you a broader understanding of how readers interpret words on the page.
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.
