We need writers to record, interpret, and forecast our lives. We need writers to provoke us, entertain us, instruct us. And, while we need writers to develop distinctive individual voices, they often need to speak out as a group in any number of forums. The Writers’ Union of Canada has given writers that collective forum.
We acknowledge the support of the Ontario Arts Council (OAC), an agency of the Government of Ontario, which last year funded 1,681 individual artists and 1,125 organizations in 216 communities across Ontario for a total of $52.8 million.
