September Writing Workshop with Tanya Huff

Tanya Huff Special Event!

Book signing and meet & greet (12:30 to 1:30): 

Bring your books for Tanya to sign, and hang around and chat with ORWA members!

Perceptions in Publishing Presentation (2:00 to 4pm): 

The world believes many things about publishing, but what’s the truth? In this workshop Tanya Huff will use her almost four decades of experience in the publishing industry to discuss perceptions of:

  • genre authors
  • who reads what
  • men and women in fiction
  • Canadian publishing vs. US or worldwide publishers

You should know what others are thinking before you jump in, and this workshop will help you prepare for the trials that await you as a Canadian author. A Q&A session will follow the presentation.


Tanya Huff is a Canadian author. Her 32 novels and 78 short stories include horror, heroic fantasy, urban fantasy, comedy, and space opera. Her Blood series was turned into the 22 episode BLOOD TIES and writing episode nine allowed her to finally use her degree in Radio & Television Arts from Ryerson Polytechnic – a degree she holds in common with Robert Sawyer.
