Write Vancouver, a power-packed writers' conference, challenges emerging and experienced writers of all ages to reach for excellence.

The third annual Vancouver writers' conference offers a rare opportunity for writers to boost their competence and connections. Write Vancouver will take place on May 23 and 24, 2014. It is sponsored by The Word Guild.

This year's Friday night literary soiree promises to be a unique celebration. One of the world's foremost evangelical thinkers, lecturer, and author of about 50 books and countless articles, the Venerable Canon Dr. J. I. Packer, will attend. The evening will kick off with a delicious four-course dinner, followed by a celebration of Dr. Packer, one of Canada's living treasures. The evening will wrap up with a lighthearted discussion, "God, Mr. Darcy, and the Need for Iconic Characters," featuring agent and author Karen Ball and a surprise guest.

Write Vancouver's Saturday line-up features an array of workshops in the areas of fiction and nonfiction writing, crowdsourcing, getting published, and developing a professional writing career-to name a few. The faculty are some of the "best in the business."
