Writers Workshop Pre-event: A Social Networking Night

Calling all aspiring authors!
Are you registered to attend the Writers Workshop at the University of Guelph??? If not, what's stopping you? It's FREE and open to the public.
This year, the evening before the big event, we've got something special in store!
The Bookshelf and Downtown Guelph Business Association, two sponsors of the Writers Workshop, are hosting a pre-event in beautiful downtown Guelph. 
Join us right here, at the iconic Bookshelf located at 41 Quebec Street. Meet presenters and writers, exchange ideas and get inspired! 
This pre-event is also open to everyone, not just those registered to attend the Writers Workshop! Maybe you're curious about the the Writers Workshop, or you want to mix and mingle with writers, c'mon and join the fun!  

For those who will be attending the next day's Writers Workshop, start your evening in The Bookshelf’s Bookstore where you can pick up your session tickets in advance, peruse books by local authors and Writers Workshop presenters, and activate your complimentary Bookshelf membership card. Members of The Bookshelf enjoy 10% off books and a

 If you aren't registered, you are welcome to purchase a membership should you like! 


 Then, join us upstairs in the Greenroom. Welcoming remarks are at 6pm, followed by an informal mix and mingle. Engage in conversations with presenters (learn about their books, classes, and other talents), meet other aspiring authors, and enjoy free appetizers, courtesy of Greenroom & the DGBA!
