Who We Are

The WGA helps give Alberta writers a sense of unity and community, and is the largest provincial writers’ organization in Canada.

The Writers Guild of Alberta’s mission is to inspire, connect, support, encourage and promote writers and writing, to safeguard the freedom to write and to read, and to advocate for the well-being of writers.
