CanWrite! 2012 is the Canadian Authors Association's 91st national writers' conference.
Each year, CanWrite! celebrates Canadian literature, provides an educational forum and networking opportunities for professional, emerging and aspiring writers from across Canada, and supports writers in the development and promotion of their work.
This year's conference will be held May 17 to 21 at Lakehead University Orillia Campus in Orillia, Ontario. The timing is perfect -- Orillia is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town written by CAA founding member Stephen Leacock.

This conference is designed for anyone who writes, wants to write or wants to get back into writing. Whether you're an aspiring writer or an accomplished professional, there will definitely be something there for you.
