One new feature we are offering to ALL current AWCS members is the opportunity to use our space for writing or small group meetings, or just to chat over a coffee or tea. Non-members are welcome to drop in to write for a $5 General Admission Fee.

For now, as we establish the current members needs, as long as the centre is open, we have the volunteers, or a class is running, you are welcome to come in. All open writing times are listed on our Calendar of Events and will be updated daily. The only time open writing will not be available is during an event.

However, if there’s a time you would like to come in, but there is no open writing listed, please send us an email, or check the Host/Hostess Volunteer Opportunity to sign up as a volunteer for the time you wish to attend. This will give you a 3-hour window (or longer) to write, and you will be granted access as well as give other members the chance to use the space as well.

There is a special drop-in time for emerging adult writers. For anyone ages 18-25, enjoy this chance to be productive in a group of your peers. Forget about adult stuff and write for two hours on the second Saturday of each month. The inaugural Emerging Writers Forget About Adult Stuff And Write For Two Hours session will be on January 13, 2018 from 6 PM – 8 PM. This group might be of particular interest for those who have aged out of our youth programs but want to continue getting together with friends and writing colleagues. See our poster for more details.
