PWAC dating game puts writers together with people needing them

The best opportunity of the year to meet Toronto freelance writers who can write a grant, or a speech or campaign materials is being offered by the Professional Writers Association of Canada (PWAC). It's somewhere between speed dating and a pub crawl and it's called The Dating Game: Connecting Writers with the People Who Need Them
People who hire writers often say that finding a freelancer is like entering into a courtship. You get to know each other a little, and if there’s a spark, you take the relationship to the next level – assignments! But how do you meet that special someone? Join us for a fun and friendly networking event. Meet writers, people in creative industries and people in hiring positions from organizations across the GTA.
The event takes place at Paupers Pub, 539 Bloor St. W, (east of Bathurst) in Toronto from 7 to 9 pm on Monday, November 17.

People needing writers may respond to K.Lear[at]pwactoronto[dot]org and receive free admission, a free job posting on writers.ca (normally $69), a facilitated introduction to meet the right writer and entry into a contest to win a 5-pack of job postings worth $249. 

Registration is open to freelancers across the GTA, free for PWAC members. Members of associate writers’ groups $10 online registration (up to midnight before event) or $20 at the door Non-members $15 online registration (up to midnight before event) or $20 at the door.
