Welcome to BCFWA!
The British Columbia Farm Writers' Association (BCFWA) serves the common interests of agricultural journalists - reporters, editors and broadcasters, as well as those in business, government and academia - whose primary responsibility is agricultural communications.
Our members are as diverse as BC's agriculture sector. We serve our members by providing professional development opportunities, and strengthening the network of our professional community. As a group we share the common goal - to share the story of agriculture in BC and beyond.
BC Farm Writer Association members, along with members of regional farm writer organizations in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Eastern Canada, are also members of the Canadian Farm Writers' Federation and the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists.
