This morning I enrolled in a meeting being held next Saturday Feb 11th by The Writers' Community of Durham Region. They're a local organization "dedicated to encouraging and promoting the art and skill of writing, fostering literacy and providing moral support to writers, poets, editors, songwriters, and illustrators through education and networking, both independently and in co-operation with existing organizations."
It'll start with breakfast then we'll hear a presentation by someone heavily involved in the book industry, who will be talking about how to get involved in all areas including getting published. It'll also give me a chance to meet other writers and do some networking.
I can't wait, I'll let you guys know how it went afterwards!
