Canadian Writers Unite In Opposition to Transcon Media

Many of you should have received this press release from PWAC National. In his blog, PWAC Quebec member Craig Silverman writes:

“This has been a long time coming in Canada, if you ask me. Large publishers have been rolling out contracts that are nothing more than unconscionable rights grabs, and now one company has simply gone too far. Today, for what I think is the first time in history, Canadian writers groups have combined with big literary agencies to call on their members and clients to not write for Transcontinental Media, one of the country’s biggest publishers.”

Read his blog post and spread the word: don’t write for Transcon. He has a link that lists all of TM’s publications as well. (Note, Silverman is board member of PWAC, so he had a hand in drafting the press release.)
