about us

We are the PEI Writers' Guild—a group of authors, editors, publishing industry professionals, and community-minded writers. While we can be whimsical storytellers and wandering poets, we can also be marketing experts, web designers and screenwriters.

We are content creators and influencers, rooted in Prince Edward Island, but with a dynamic, enveloping global wingspan. We are diverse, indigenous, newcomers to Canada and long-settled immigrants. We are students, and we are teachers. We write short fiction, YA, memoir, and travel. We write creative nonfiction, lyric poems, ballads, eco poetry, and recipes. We are spoken word artists, performance poets, and we write legends, bedtime stories...and more!
                                                       

Our Vision

The vision of the PEI Writer's Guild is to create a thriving, inclusive writing community, right here on PEI.

OUR mandate

1. To provide mentorship, training, and a safe space for ALL writers to share, explore, learn, and hone their craft. 
2. To facilitate opportunities for writers to share and promote their work and craft. 
3. To encourage entrepreneurial, economic, and business aspects of writing.
