WRITERS FOUNDATION OF STRATHCONA COUNTY AT A GLANCE
For the Written Word
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.
Membership fees go toward the group's operating and administration costs, which includes maintaining our popular WFSC web site. Fundraising efforts organized by volunteers from the WFSC and sponsorship and/or grant monies are invested in programs and services open to not only our members but the community at large.
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.
The WFSC is limited only by the level of its volunteer commitment: as we grow so will opportunities for our groups, our members, and the community. We continue to hone our craft, encourage new members, promote cultural and creative diversity. For events we promote annually, see OUR PROJECTS.
WRITING PROMPT JOURNEY
~ THE ROAD TO YOUR CREATIVITY
The purpose of this book is to help writers stretch their imagination - be creative and step outside the box.
WFSC published its first anthology compilation of member work in 2010 which offers a selection of writing prompts and sample writing to encourage fellow writers to write creatively. This is an excellent stepping stone to understanding there are many stories that may come out of one idea.
Let your creativity flow today!

PRIDE OF STRATHCONA AWARD 2011
Arts, Culture & Heritage Category
We thank our lovely county and are proud to accept a Pride of Strathcona Award.
Our mandate is to support writers - any age, any stage of their writing career. Money raised by our non-profit organization is channeled back into the community, not only for the benefit of our own members, but for the benefit of all those who love the written word. Throughout 2019, we plan to do more school presentations, continue to build the 'Your Lifetime of Stories' Workshops for all ages and gain new members to further support literacy and writing in our community. With your help we can make more of an impact.
We appreciate you.
