Call for Submissions: BIPOC Writers Connect

BIPOC Writers Connect is back, and this time we’re going national!

This digital conference for Black, Indigenous, and racialized emerging writers is your chance to connect with industry professionals, established authors, and fellow emerging writers — all in one place! Presented by The Writers' Union of Canada and the League of Canadian Poets, BIPOC Writers Connect: Facilitating Mentorship, Creating Community includes one-on-one feedback from a published author, a practical query letter–writing workshop, an industry panel discussion, and plenty of networking opportunities.

This event is free for attendees, but advance application is required. We welcome applications from emerging writers across Canada.


This event was created in response to the unique barriers faced by Black, Indigenous, and racialized emerging writers navigating the literary industry.

The Union has set aside some funding to accommodate tech rentals for participants who may require support.
