I just found out about this Writers' event coming up in Toronto in June 2016: http://www.canadianwriterssummit.com

(The SCBWI is a participating organization)...

It looks like an amazing opportunity!  ::-)

Sue, I'd never heard of it before, even via our Canada SCBWI Chapter members (but maybe I'm not paying as much attention as a YA Author would be)
So busy getting ready for the SCBWI Canada East Conference this month that I never realized there was anything else going on in Canada for Authors, thanks for posting this!

This is the first time I've heard of the event, too. :wc

I'm not sure if I'll be able to attend this year either, Artemesia. :ohwell Let's hope they do it again next year.

Chris - enjoy the SCBWI East Conference!!
