Armstrong, Bob, Winnipeg Free Press


Fourteen Canadian writers organizations will gather in Toronto in June in the first Canadian Writers' Summit.

The event will feature the annual meetings of participating groups, including the Writers' Union of Canada and the League of Canadian Poets, as well as several panels and presentations about issues affecting writers.

Details on the June 15-19 event are at www.canadianwritersummit.com.
