The Saskatchewan Farm Writers Association is an organization for farm journalists and communicators to share information about Saskatchewan's agriculture sector and about communicating. SFWA provides a forum for networking with others in our field and offers numerous opportunities throughout the year for learning and professional development.
Professional development days are usually held each spring and fall and as opportunities arise. Additional meetings are held in conjunction with agriculture events such as the Western Canadian Farm Progress Show and Canadian Western Agribition. An annual meeting is held in conjunction with Crop Production Week in Saskatoon in January.
Membership in SFWA also provides members with national and international connections through the Canadian Farm Writers Federation and the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists.
