Canadian Writers Group includes a team of agents and support staff dedicated to pairing writers with the best projects and clients.
The agency was founded in 2009 by writer and editor, Derek Finkle. Finkle’s first book, No Claim to Mercy, an examination of the troubling Robert Baltovich murder case was published in 1998. No Claim to Mercy won the Crime Writers’ Arthur Ellis Award for best non-fiction and was named a Notable Book of the Year by The Globe and Mail.
In 2000, Finkle was hired as a contributing features editor at the weekly Saturday Night. From 2002 to 2007, he was the editor of Toro magazine, which garnered more than sixty National Magazine Award nominations, including Finkle’s gold for investigative reporting in 2005.
In 2016, Canadian Writers Group aligned with Parcel, a brand strategy and communication design firm. As editorial contributors to Parcel, our writers help businesses use their brands to better navigate the knowledge economy. To learn more about Parcel, visit the firm’s website.
