Have the itch to do some creative writing, interviewing and networking? Need a platform to share your writing and hard work? Send an email describing what you would like to write about and we will be sure to get back to you with feedback and instructions for appropriate next steps. Writers (in the Ottawa/Gatineau/GTA region) have access to photographers and videographers to create multimedia posts (videos, photos, podcasts etc.) but we also encourage written features such as creative writing, poetry, and essays.

City Guides*
There’s nothing more exciting than prepping for a trip to a foreign city, scouring the internet and flipping through travel books to find all the best places to see on your holiday. I don’t think I’m alone here when I say I go beyond just researching the standard trip advisor sites for the best places to see, I really do my research for where the locals go – doing my best to find the hidden gems. Let’s celebrate some of the local businesses, restaurants, galleries, spaces in your community run (predominantly run by women).
