Guild Chapters

The Silverleaf Writers Guild is a young non-profit group run entirely by volunteers. Over the past few years, we’ve been growing and expanding throughout Northern Ontario. Now, we are looking for champions to help us open chapters in communities across Northern Ontario. We are willing to help champions start chapters from scratch, or partner with existing writing groups who are struggling to thrive.

Our champions become local contacts that help:

  • organize local guild gatherings
  • collect donations on behalf of the guild (not a sales role)
  • liaison with the board to ensure we’re meeting local needs

We currently have the following chapters:

Community Champion Name Phone Number
Timmins Jessica Trudel 705-262-3268
Tri-Town Jessica Goodwin 705-622-2683
Sault Ste. Marie Gregory Saxby 705-649-3123

If your Northern Ontario community does not have a writers group and you’d like us to establish one, or if it does have a writers group that you feel would benefit from a partnership with us, please fill out the following form.

Our vision is to one day see a thriving writers group in every Northern Ontario community. We’re just getting started! Help us support writers across the region by becoming a champion in your community. Here’s a list of communities we’d love to explore as a potential site for a guild chapter. If you don’t see your community on this list, but you are located in Northern Ontario, it’s possible your community is considered part of a larger community already on the list. That doesn’t mean you don’t qualify. Fill in the form above to find out if you and your community are eligible!
