Based on the success of our collaboration with CMG Freelance in 2018, PWAC's 2019 Conference will be in conjunction with When Words Collide, the very popular annual festival held in Calgary, August 9-11, 2019.  We'll be presenting three sessions there, along with a unique opportunity especially for those of you interested in writing a fiction book - you'll be able to network with other successful fiction authors and learn some of the tricks of their trade!

Two of the sessions are already set:

  • Copyright for Writers - in light of the recent review of the Copyright Act and the proposed changes to the Copyright Board Act, this should be a very timely panel presentation.  You'll be able to learn about your rights as a creator and how you can maximize and protect them.  We'll be joined by a representative of Access Copyright as well, so you will be hearing about their efforts to protect the rights of Canadian authors.
  • Public Speaking for Writers - have you ever been asked to make a presentation or give a speech?  If you've ever suffered butterflies when speaking before a group, this participative session is for you.  Working with several successful speakers/writers, you'll learn how to prepare to speak and how to maintain your confidence and poise throughout.  Speaking engagements can connect you with potential clients and can, by themselves, be a profitable part of your writing business - if you know how to do it.  Here's your opportunity to learn!

When Words Collide, in addition to offering PWAC content and their own great sessions, is also a real bargain - if you register before January 1, 2019, the price is $45 (yes, you read that right!).  They have arranged special room rates at the Delta Calgary South Hotel, which is also the festival venue.  Finally, there are discounts available with WestJet if you're flying to Calgary (details on their website).

When Words Collides always sells out, so you'll want to register soon!
