What we're about

So You Want to Write? hosts a monthly Writer Pub Night in Toronto with Literary Agent Sam Hiyate!

This group is for writers of any skill level who want to learn from a literary agent with 28 years of experience in the publishing industry.

Each month we also host a new speaker -- an author, editor, literary agent, or publisher who will give you the tools and tips you need to write your fiction or non-fiction book. The talk is always followed by a Q&A session where all your burning writing questions are answered.

After the Q&A we have a lot of laughs, getting to know our fellow writers, trading tips, and just having a good time!

In addition to pub nights we host writing challenges, panel discussions, reading-critiques, and writing workshops, all of which will help you take your book from an idea to a published work.

We're a vibrant and inclusive group -- everyone will feel welcome here.
