The Writers’ Community of Simcoe County (WCSC)
functions as a hub for practitioners and fans of the written word. Our aim is to engage, inform and encourage writers at all levels and of all genres, independently and in co-operation with existing cultural and writing-related organizations, associations, libraries and community groups.

From September to June, we meet one Sunday a month from 11:30 to 1:00 p.m. at The Leacock Museum, 50 Museum Drive, Orillia. Each month we feature speakers from all aspects of the writing life – authors, freelancers, editors, agents, and publishers – to motivate, inspire and enlighten writers and aspiring writers in our community. Each month we offer an optional hands-on workshop which follows a short break after the speaker. The workshop is from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm.

WCSC offers you opportunities for information-sharing, networking and support, education and professional development. Whether you are a fiction or non-fiction writer, poet, playwright, screenwriter, songwriter, editor, or someone who just loves the way words connect, you’ll find yourself at home at a WCSC meeting.
