Don't miss our Special Hosted Open Mic!

We are pleased to announce that this Open Mic will be hosted by A.E. Matheson's Children's Writing Group!

About the group:

We are a group of 7 writers who create work especially for children, from picture books for the very young to novels for young adults and every age in between. We have been meeting for almost 2 years at D'Lish restaurant in Saskatoon to encourage and critique one another, and you'll find us there once a month sharing our work and sometimes a piece of cheesecake. We're please to have this opportunity to share some of our work with the wider community.

Please come out for a fun evening of readings!

Wes Funk, Saskatoon author and teacher, has died. 

The Saskatoon Writers' Collective is sad to hear of the death of Wes Funk. He was a shining light of the Saskatoon writing community. Our sympathies go out to his family and friends.

A memorial will be held on Saturday, October 17th at 1pm at Prairieland Hall B at the Saskatoon Exhibition Ground.  In lieu of flowers,  donations can be made to Out Saskatoon, or the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild.
