Welcome to Reading as Writers (RAW)!
“When we’re not writing, we’re probably reading.”
The RAW site is designed to promote Canadian authors, more specifically the many monthly speakers of the Writers’ Community of Durham Region (WCDR), the Writers’ Community of York Region (WCYR), and the Writers’ Community of Simcoe County (WCSC). We provide a forum for our members to discuss the books of the speakers featured.
We also provide a place where our members can share their thoughts on the many books on the craft of writing. There are a number books on the craft out there and it can be difficult to narrow down our search. RAW gives our members (though anyone is welcome to share) a place to leave their feedback and browse to see what their fellow writers have found helpful along the way.
Comments are welcome at anytime, by anyone. Please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts! RAW is designed to be a timeless book club and database where our members can browse and leave their feedback as they choose.
We encourage members to suggest books on the craft to include in our database. Please contact the RAW Coordinator by clicking the “Contact” tab in the menu above, or by clicking the appropriate link in the right sidebar.

CONTRIBUTE TO THE RAW BLOG:
We invite our members to consider contributing to the RAW blog with posts that are relevant to the concept of reading as a writer, or to discuss any of the books featured on this website. We also have a series of blog posts on the experience of re-reading a particular work and/or author, critically assessing the work while comparing your assessment as a writer to your past thoughts on this book/author. For more information on this, check out this blog entry or email the RAW Coordinator.
