Surrey International Writers Conference: Currently Underway!

As a board member I get to work with amazing folks, and each year brings new ways to learn and engage with writing and professional development. This year due to our pandemic, the team at SiWC created an online version that has grown bigger than ever:

With attendees, volunteers, staff, and presenters, we’re close to 750 (registrants),” conference co-ordinator Kathy Chung told the Now-Leader.

“It’s bigger than the regular conference, which is no doubt in part due to the fact that we consistently sell out the available space in the hotel very quickly. We had a bit more flexibility with virtual space and so were able to accommodate more people.”

It will be lovely to connect with writers familiar and new:

Mary Robinette Kowal, Susanna Kearsley and Diana Gabaldon are among the returning presenters, along with Sonali Dev, Erin Roberts, Daniel Heath Justice, Tetsuro Shigematsu, Helaine Becker, and Mahtab Narsimhan.”

Anyone interested can also follow along with the hashtags #thisdaywewrite and #SiWC20.
