Day Nine: Writer Profiles: Portraits from the TWUC Conference | Christmastide – 12 days of blogging

Hello friends!

Today is Day 9 of the 12 days of blogging that coincides with Christmastide (the twelve days of Christmas).

We’re looking back to May of this year, when The Writer’s Union of Canada hosted it’s AGM and OnWords Conference at the Holiday Inn in Vancouver.  I was the conference photographer and I set up a Headshot Portrait Marathon.

17 members signed up for our 4 hour event.  We included a studio portrait and a natural light (on-location) portrait.

It’s amazing the diversity of work within this group of writers/authors/editors!  Please click their names to see their websites.
