WordBridge Lethbridge Writers’ Conference

WordBridge 2021 is Feb 12 & 13.

Lethbridge’s Writers’ Conference is now in its third year, but due to the pandemic, it will be hosted online via Zoom. Thanks to the significantly lower costs associated with online verses in-person, tickets for the entire two-day conference are a mere $5.

This year’s Keynote Address will be given by Lethbridge best-selling author Paul Butler on “The Contemporary Nature of Historical Fiction”. 

Panels presentations include such topics as  “Publishing and Writers”, “Writing for Youth”, “Realism in Crime Novels”, “Dealing with criticism”, “Writing Romance”, “Working with a Publicist”  “Self-Publishing”, “World-Building”, “Show Don’t Tell”, “Using Myth and folklore to improve your writing”, “Finding Your Voice”, and more.

Take a break and support your local writers’ community by coming out for this year’s conference. For tickets and more information, go to or follow us on Facebook.
