Writers Foundation of Strathcona County

Our mandate is simple: provide support for writers, any age, any stage of their writing career. This simple but focused directive keeps the WFSC on track every year allowing the group to contribute back to the community whenever possible.

The WFSC proudly supports young writers by referring them to workshops and camps geared toward young writers. It is our intent to continue to encourage and support young writers with an eye to the future sustainability of the WFSC -today's young writers are our leaders.
