The Writers’ Guild of Alberta hosts monthly events to give our members and those interested in joining a chance to get away from their writing desk to socialize with other writers, talk about what’s happening in the book world and learn more about the Writers’ Guild of Alberta. These events also feature informed presenters who talk about specific aspects of writing.
