Durham Region is home to one of the most active writers' organizations in the province, the WCDR, which hosts the annual Ontario Writers Conference and is the inspiration for many similar writers' groups in other areas. Blue Heron Books and the region's public libraries offer venues for writers and artists to mingle, meet and inspire. Its rich literary history — think Hardy Boys and Anne of Green Gables — seems to infuse the atmosphere for today's writers with an incomparable energy. Follow Open Book: Ontario's Focus On: Durham Region throughout the month of December to find out more about the talented, diverse and supportive writers who make their homes here.

With special thanks to the City of Pickering for permission to publish the photos in this series.
