Our History

A Little About Us

It seems like it's a long time ago, but way back in time three aspiring writers Barb, Natasha, and Christina met. This meeting was greeted with much happiness and sobs of relief from their non-writing friends & family, for whom long, deep discussions about grammar, plotting, and character arc had become the stuff of torture and the topic subject when they met with their therapists.

This took place beginning in the early 2000's, these women began meeting at Capilano library to read each other’s works, catch up on industry news, and support each other through the challenge of writing and heartbreak of rejections. And thus began the Edmonton Writers’ Group - although it wasn't called that way back then, in fact I don't think it had a name.
