Having been to more than a few different Writer’s Conference across Canada, Windsor’s was a truly unique experience because of the intimate atmosphere it creates. Rather than being inundated by swarms of aspiring writers, both literary agents, and notable writers such as Nino Ricci and Carol Rehme, had more than enough time to share their wisdom.
Another spectacular feature was the diversity of content. Not only were the speakers and workshops directed towards fiction writers, but also journalists and filmmakers. On a personal level, it has given me the missing pieces towards producing work that actually sells, mainly by the connections you make at the conference. It is something I would recommend to both beginner and established writers.
