Elliot Lake Writers' Workshop & Writers' Fall Festival

Elliot Lake (Click on photo for enlargement)
The Elliot Lake Writers are a vibrant group devoted to the craft, process and joy of writing. Currently we have sixteen members. Approximately half of our members have met with some publishing success. We come together to learn and to share. The art of creative writing can be a lonely experience and it’s a pleasure to have the opportunity to meet with kindred spirit and to offer support to one another. Writers at all levels of expertise are welcome.

We meet in the Lester B. Pearson Civic Centre’s general meeting room on the third Monday of each month from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Annual membership fees are $20.

New members always welcome. Contact Audrey Austin at:
