Become a Program Partner

Celebrating diverse perspectives in spaces of dignity, courage, and respect for all writers.

Through partners, we offer our community writing workshop program, which is proven to create deep connection, increase resilience, and strengthen self-advocacy among community members. Together, we empower and amplify the magnificent authentic voices of one and all, including those from traditionally underserved populations and underheard individuals nationwide.

We would love to speak with you about how WCC’s unique writing workshop methodology can enhance the mission of your agency, community organization, community centre, support service, place of worship, community, or endeavour.

For a sense of the breadth and depth of our community programming, peruse the list of partner organizations below.
