There is a new website in town catering toward Toronto and the GTA’s writers! Markham Village Writers is a non-profit website established in May, 2009 and loaded with information of interest to anyone who enjoys the craft of writing. This site includes monthly interviews with writing professionals — most recently K.D. Miller and Andrew Pyper –; lists the many literary events in Ontario, including writer’s workshops and author readings; has helpful tips, articles, and fun contests; and has entertaining stories to read! They accept submissions of stories, poetry and creative non-fiction, which they publish in their guest writers section.
This website is an offspring of the Markham Village Writers’ Group, which meets once a month to discuss writing, read from their own written work and, mainly, to inspire each other to ‘write, write, write!” Their members are writers of mystery, romance, general fiction, creative non-fiction, children’s literature and poetry. They are always open to new members.
For any aspiring writer or any lover of writing, it’s definitely worth a look.
