Photo gallery: TFEW 10th anniversary celebration

Toronto-area writers, editors and well-wishers crowded into the upstairs room of Big Mamma's Boy on Parliament St. last night to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Toronto Freelance Editors & Writers collective. Over the past decade, the group, which exists mostly in the digital realm as an e-mail discussion forum, has grown from "6 people in David Hayes' living room to the 270 members on the list today." Our photos from the event below the fold.
