Snow Plan

We all remember last winter and its messiness (in fact, we'd be hard-pressed to forget it!) Because of that, the WFNS Office has put a plan in place to ensure the safety of staff. On days when the weather is questionable (sidewalks and roads unplowed, ice, heavy snow, extreme temperatures, etc.) your staff may be working from home. On those days, a notice will be posted on social media and our website. If you have an urgent query on those days, please email contact@writers.ns.ca as we won't be in the office to answer the phone.

We wish you all a joy-filled, book-filled and writing time-filled holiday season!

See you in 2016!
