In an article posted this spring over at Open Book Toronto, Suzanne Sutherland reflects on her experience as a student who participated in WiER. She was in grade seven at the time, and so would have participated in our middle school program. Every now and then we hear from Wired Writer alumni and it is always a pleasure when we do. Many thanks to Suzanne for posting her thoughts on Open Book Toronto.

WiER is sorry to report that funding cutbacks in the government sector have had the effect of dropping WiER below an operational level. Accordingly, WiER's Trustees have suspended operations, effective December 31, 2013, which is our fiscal year-end.
The Trustees have opted to suspend the program rather than close it in order to provide some time to investigate other directions. Indeed, there have already been some discussions along these lines.
For more information, here is a PDF of our announcement.
Many thanks, all.
During the period of suspension, we will continue to update our web site, and to make content available (e.g., author bios, The WiER Taps, Wired Writers Podcasts). Please feel free to follow us on Facebook, and on Twitter (@wiredwriters).
Annual audit completed and submitted June 30-14.
