Message from Executive Director Bryan Mortensen

13 Jul 2020 12:22 PM | Doni Eve

After serving in leadership roles in not-for-profits and at the University of Alberta over the last 12 years, I’m excited to be the new executive director for the Federation of British Columbia Writers.  Like many of you, I am an emerging writer.  In my case, that is code for “hoping to be published in the not-too-distant future.”
Our work as writers is vital to our communities. We are the storytellers shaping not just our history, but ideas and experiences. We shape the world by doing our work as artists. And I want to help each of you tell your story, regardless of what medium you use.
As executive director, my primary objective is to continue supporting our members while seeking opportunities to enhance and expand our programming and services.  My greatest wish in this role is that members feel they are getting true value for their memberships.  I look forward to getting to know you all as I settle in and am excited to see what we can accomplish together.
I am honoured to join such a unique and vibrant community.

Kind regards,
Bryan Mortensen
Executive Director
Federation of British Columbia Writers
