The WGA 2022 Conference: Shifting Creative Gears, is scheduled for June 3 – 5, 2022.
After two years of trying new digital programs to adapt our literary world to the pandemic, we are now looking at how our creative lives might shift going forward—perhaps we won’t return to “normal,” but instead take the things we learned during the pandemic to create a new vision of the literary world for the future.
In the spirit of shifting gears, we are planning a hybrid format for this year’s conference, offering online programming on all three days plus select in-person activities in four Alberta hubs. Edmonton, Calgary, Lethbridge, and Fort McMurray will each receive an in-person writing workshop which will also be streamed for online participants, a networking activity, and a group writing critique session on Saturday, June 4. Many online workshops, panels, keynotes, networking sessions, and group critique sessions will be available.
Your conference registration includes access to all activities June 3 – 5. You may attend any of the in-person hubs plus any of the online activities, or attend online activities only. All registrants will receive access to recorded sessions for a limited time following the conference.
