Writers.ca - Have your say

27 Jun 2016 10:51 AM | George Butters (Administrator)

Writers.ca - the much ballyhooed and much maligned mega-project is essentially in lock-down mode. The site didn't live up to its promises, cost an exorbitant amount of money, and thanks to out-of-date software, was the target of a hacker attack.

But that's in the past, and we're looking to the future.

PWAC.ca is our members-only clubhouse, while Writers.ca is our public-facing web property.

There have been suggestions that we dump it and stick with just one website. I disagree: Writers.ca has enormous potential to attract people looking for writers to our (public) door.

Many of the useful features on PWAC.ca - such as our events calendar and Find A Writer directory of our members can be added quite easily to Writers.ca (in fact, they can be added to chapter websites as well).

This special forum was set up specifically to get the conversation going about Writers.ca and we need you to weigh in.

ACCESSING THE NEW FORUM: Log into your PWAC.ca account, and once logged in, you'll find the link to Writers.ca Forum under the Members tab in the main navigation bar near the top of the page.

    Thanks George for all your hard work and for initiating this conversation.

    I agree about the potential for writers.ca. Do we have members with the skills to launch a social media marketing campaign for the site?Once we get some serious bites (i.e. well-paying writing gigs), we can promote the site to non-members as a carrot.
