Friends of SiWC

If you have been to our event, you know that the Surrey International Writers’ Conference was founded to inspire, educate and motivate aspiring and experienced writers alike and has been called the best writers’ conference in North America. You may not be aware the conference runs as a not-for-profit, cost-recovery event. Every year, the conference features more than 70 workshops, panels and special events conducted by world-class, best selling authors and industry professionals. Generally, we draw more than 700 delegates, presenters and volunteers.

Like all Canadian Arts groups, funding for us is always a struggle. If you choose to become an official Friend of SiWC, you will gain the opportunity to contribute to the literary landscape within our year-round writing community, while assisting the conference to help us present the best possible event. As a Friend of SiWC, your donation can bring you more than just the pleasure of helping support our conference. We are a not-for-profit society, so you can use your receipt as a business expense deduction. 

We would love to have you join Friends of SiWC. You can make your contribution by contacting our administrator at  Thank you for becoming a "Friend of SiWC". With your support, we look forward to bringing you the best conference ever!
