After years of writing professionally, I finally sent off my application to the Professional Writers Association of Canada (PWAC) last week and heard back right away on Monday that I was accepted as a Professional Member. A nice way to start the week, for sure.
PWAC is a great organization working on behalf of freelance writers in Canada.
We serve Canadian non-fiction freelance writers across the country. As a not-for-profit, we reflect your broader professional interests and advocate for Canadian writers to receive fair pay, contracts and treatment. Our goals are to:
- Promote the value, rights and interests of professional non-fiction Canadian writers
- Deliver outstanding resources and professional development to Canada’s freelance writers
- Provide a critical bridge to connect writers with clients
