You don’t have to be a PWAC member to enjoy the fabulous professional development that the PWAC Quebec folks have put together for the PWAC annual conference. If you’ve been on the fence for a while and need an excuse to join, you will save on the conference.
PWAC presents excellent networking opportunities, professional development, and actively circulates exclusive, high-end writing gigs privately to all members by email.
