The Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia has three core communications priorities: communications with members, communications on behalf of and in the interests of members, and communications with the diverse markets for Nova Scotia writers and writing. These communications priorities are achieved through a range of approaches, including our bi-weekly email newsletter (SubText) and our comprehensive social media communications strategy (with its regional and national profile-raising channels).
Sent to members by email every two weeks, SubText communicates time-sensitive information such as event listings, workshops, and other announcements from the WFNS, from individual members, and from the broader writing and publishing community. SubText includes a "Member News" section that provides a space for WFNS members to share their periodical publications, recent awards, and other notable achievements.
WFNS uses Facebook (@WritersFedNS), Twitter (@WritersFedNS), and Instagram (@WritersFedofNS) to promote WFNS programming and share WFNS member events. Our Facebook Page (with its concentrated local impact) is primarily leveraged for outreach, while our Twitter account (with more than 3000 followers across Canada’s writing and publishing sectors) helps raise the profile of Nova Scotia writers and writing farther afield.
