Writers Union Of Canada

A not-quite-union of over-forty writers who desperately want to feel like professionals, more desperately want to curry favour with culturally aggressive minorities and indifferent governments, but have too few red blood cells to bring any of it off. So the members dream about having a writers’ dental plan, the Union bulks up with children’s writers, whines about government cuts, and degenerates into the Canadian Authors Association–yet another group of futile old men and fuddy-duddy ladies wearing shoes too sensible to have real imagination riding atop them.
