What Is the Toronto Writers Collective?

The Toronto Writers Collective is a nonprofit organization that provides free ongoing creative writing workshops in Toronto’s underserved communities. Our mission is to inspire voice and empower the unheard in our city. The populations we serve are diverse and include the homeless, the LGBTQ community, women at risk, and Aboriginal communities, with mental health issues running through all sectors. Our workshops offer a safe, accessible and inclusive space for participants to write and share their stories.
