Writers' Trust of Canada has been central to the literary health of the country for almost fifty years. Founded by writers for writers, the organization supports authors at all stages of their careers and celebrates good work and fellowship. It is a huge booster of culture in Canada.
As an author, I benefited from the attention of Writers' Trust in my career. As Executive Director for the past four years, I've worked with the staff, board of directors, and donors to widen and deepen how the organization can help the community it was created to serve.
I will be leaving my position at the end of 2023. This was a difficult decision for me to make, and I will miss everything about the work, the people, and the mission. I look forward to working with my successor during the transition. The board has established a search committee and hired Boyden to lead the search. They will be taking the summer to speak with potential candidates about the role. Here is a link to the job posting:
The next Executive Director will take over a dynamic and growing organization with a superb staff and a strong board of directors. I have no doubt Writers' Trust will continue to thrive for decades to come.
With best wishes,
