What we're about

Junction Writers, based in Toronto, Ontario, is a great and diverse group of writers. The group has a wonderful mix of people, young, old, male, female, experienced and novice. The attendees are from a wide range of ethnic origins and backgrounds, their one defining characteristic is that they live in and around Toronto. While our group is open to all, we do prioritize attendees who could actually attend an in-person meeting. Historically we co-hosting an in-person session with the Annette Street Writer's Group, meeting Monday every 2 weeks at the Annette Street Library-- https://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/detail.jsp?Entt=RDMEVT25439&R=EVT25439. Now we meet on Zoom.

The heart of these meetings is a lively and well-attended writer's group full of amazing and mindful people. They are excellent writers and the feedback and inspiration they provide is priceless. A good writer's group is essential for every writer, and this is a great group. Typically, 3 writers present their stories at each meeting. Each story should not exceed 2,500 words (but of course can be much less), and should be submitted online beforehand so others can read in advance. The stories are read at the meeting, typically not by the author, but the author is free to read herself if she wishes. The facilitator then manages a round-table critique session, and members are also encouraged to bring hard copies of the stories and write in comments.
