PWAC, in partnership with Canadian Media Guild (CMG) Freelance Branch, is pleased to present "LEVEL UP: THE CONFERENCE", which offers several exciting Professional Development activities, including sessions on navigating contracts, managing risk and publishing your first book.
We'll be having our first-ever speed networking/mentoring session, where you can meet with potential clients to pitch story ideas, and chat with experienced PWAC/CMG members to hone both the professional and business sides of your craft. We are offering working tours of some Toronto "hot spots" to help you develop ideas for stories. This was a big hit at the PWAC conference in Fredericton in 2017. Another highlight is the screening of the award-winning film California Typewriter, which not only celebrates this way of writing, but shows why some people still prefer the typewriter to more modern technology.
Of course, there will be plenty of opportunities for networking during the day and in the evening, in our hospitality suite. The PWAC Annual General Meeting will be taking place on Sunday, September 23. This is an important opportunity to discuss PWAC's operations and vote for the 2018-19 Board of Directors. Delegates must attend, and observers are welcome.
If you're just interested in Professional Development, we have you covered with our "PD-Only" rates, entitling you to participate in the Professional Development sessions on Friday and Saturday. We also offer an online PD option for Friday only, Saturday only, or both days (excludes Saturday morning activities).
This is the year for #FreelancersLevelUp - make sure you're not left behind; reserve your place at our exciting 2018 event!
