We recently received a query from an author asking for information on great writer conferences in Canada. One that KWL has attended for the past 3 years has been WHEN WORDS COLLIDE (http://www.whenwordscollide.org/) which takes place in Calgary, Alberta in early August each year.
We've found it useful because it's a wonderful mix of writers and readers and is inclusive of most types of writing - ie, from literary to more commercial and genre fiction. There's a great series of parallel tracks featuring workshops and discussions on the craft and business of writing and publishing as well as fan-based discussions and author readings.
But we know that there are countless other conferences out there and we'd love for you to share any conferences that you've found value in attending as a writer as well as the specialty/focus of the conference.
