Haliburton is for Writers
Welcome to the Highlands!
You know that familiar image of the writer: working alone at a desk, in a picturesque cabin somewhere in the woods?
Well hey, you just found us - we're the
Haliburton Highlands Writers' and Editors' Network.
Okay, so maybe we don’t all live in the woods, and maybe some of us don’t even live in Haliburton. But as writers – professional or novice – we do share in one belief: Writing is much more fun when you don’t try to go it alone. As communicators, we realize that we must maintain contact with the rest of the world. As artists – professional or otherwise – we must continue to grow and mature. Ours is a time-honoured skill and profession; a craft handed down through the ages – from mentor to student, from one skilled hand to the next.
We appreciate the poets in our midst as well - and songwriters (those poets who lovingly embellish their poetry with music.) If poetry is your passion, check out 'Live Poets in the Pub', which meets from 7-9 pm. at the Dominion Hotel in Minden, on the third Wednesday of every month.
Our Mission Statement says it all:
The Haliburton Highlands Writers’ and Editors’ Network is a non-profit, umbrella organization dedicated to encouraging and promoting the art and skill of writing, fostering literacy, and providing moral support to writers and editors through education and networking, both independently and in cooperation with existing organizations.
We welcome anyone to join us – even if you don’t consider yourself a writer or live in Haliburton. Our membership rates are as modest as we are, and we continue to work on our Benefits of Membership.
If you are seeking the services of a qualified writer or editor – or perhaps wish to purchase an excellent book – we invite you to peruse our individual Members’ Pages and contact the member directly. If you have an opportunity you'd like our members to know about, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for visiting us today!
Did you attend A Writer's Christmas? If so, the video above should bring back some great memories. If not, plan to join us this Christmas!
