Wonder/SHIFT

stories of transformation and change

COMING FALL 2021

40 years! The Alexandra Writers Centre is celebrating 40 years of writers and writing in 2021. And with 40 years comes significant change from the way we see the world, to the way we operate and along the way so many writers have graced our classrooms, spilling their creativity and energy on one another.

We are excited to announce that coming in fall 2021, we have put together an anthology of works by past and present members, students, instructors of AWCS.
