PWAC Toronto Networking Group

Participate in some great networking opportunities through monthly PWAC Toronto Networking Group (PTNG) meetings. Each month, you'll have an opportunity to meet other writers and pick up valuable writing and business tips.

Meetings take place the first Thursday of every month starting at 7:30 p.m. The meetings will be co-hosted by PWACers such as Sue Bowness, Sharon Aschaiek and Saul Chernos. PTNG meetings are open to PWAC Toronto members and guests, or those considering joining PWAC. No charge. However, you must pre-register as space is limited.

More about PTNG

What & Why: The PWAC Toronto Networking Group was set up in July, 2003 to provide a venue for writers to meet and discuss their craft. It is open to all current members of the PWAC Toronto chapter and their guests.

Meetings are held in a relaxed atmosphere and refreshments are served. Each meeting has an agenda, with a focus on one area of special interest each month, and allows plenty of time to talk informally about a wide variety of subjects.

PTNG Members Speak:

Here's what members of the group have to say about how they've benefited from PWAC Toronto Networking Group meetings:

"There's a wonderful dynamic that happens when we meet to talk about our craft. A lot of learning goes on, encouragement and reinforcement. I'm always amazed by the collective knowledge and experience everyone brings to the group and it constantly energizes me to keep following what I intuitively know is my path.”
- Adrian Blake, Adrian Blake Communications

"The Toronto PWAC Networking Group offers entertaining evenings that are part social event, part networking meeting. I enjoy the chats, the tips, the quips, the market info, leads on new gigs and the simple pleasure of meeting fellow scribes in a laid-back environment. I wouldn't keep attending if I didn't enjoy what the Networking Group has to offer. The coffee is damn fine too."
- Nate Hendley , PWAC member and satisfied PWAC Toronto Networking Groupie

"The PWAC networking group is a great opportunity to get advice, ideas, and reassurance. After a day spent alone in my home office, it's really refreshing to get together with a bunch of others who also do what I do, and share stories."
- Sue Bowness, CodeWord writing and web design

My PWAC membership is paid up for the next 20 years, or more, through work, information and knowledge acquired by networking with other PWAC members. But more importantly to me has been the company of fellow writers. I still run my own business but I no longer feel like this is a solo quest."
- Paul Lima , Writer/Trainer/Communicator ...for the right words!

"The PWAC networking group gives us writers an informal way to let loose about writing concerns and queries. The energy in the room (no doubt also fueled by the coffee and apple cider) draws out everyone's horror stories of the clients from hell, or some of the stupid things we've done. We also learn a lot from each other and go home energized to market, market and write, write."
- Sharon Crawford , "Writer/Editor/instructor: We make words sparkle
