Word Awards Gala
Looking for a wonderful night of celebration? Come join us at The Word Awards Gala on June 24, 2016, the second night of the Write Canada conference. The Gala will be held in the ballroom of the Holiday Inn at Yorkdale, 3450 Dufferin Street, Toronto, Ontario M6A 2V1. Paid parking available.
Check-In: 5:30 pm
Dinner: 6:30 pm
Awards Presentation: 8:00 pm
The premier national event honouring Canadian writers who are Christian will present awards for outstanding career achievement, and for the best novels, non-fiction books, articles, scripts, poems, and song lyrics published in 2015.
The evening will include dinner, music, keynote address, and award presentations. Meet industry professionals, writing colleagues, fellow members of The Word Guild and Write Canada registrants. Meet and support our best writers.
This is a black-tie event, so we are requesting tuxedos or dark suits with ties for men, formal or semi-formal wear for women. (However, don’t let wardrobe concerns keep you away, especially if you’re packing light or coming from a distance; just wear your best outfit!)
|Special music by Dana Marie, Christian recording artist from Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. She won the 2010 Shining Star vocal competition for Christian radio station 94.3 Faith FM. In 2011, Marie was nominated for “Modern Rock/Alternative Album of the Year” at the Gospel Music Association of Canada’s Covenant Awards. Dana Marie has released two full-length albums including her self titled debut “Dana Marie” and “What You See”.|

|Dana Marie is passionate about using music as a tool to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those living in poverty; physically, emotionally, and spiritually.|
