Yesterday I told you about the Ontario Writers’ Conference, which takes place in Ajax, Ontario on May2-3, 2014. How about we swing over to the other side of the country today! If you’re looking to make waves into the conference/festival season a little earlier than May, you can always take a trip to Galiano Island in February. Come the 21st, you’ll find some of Canada’s literati on the island for the 5th Annual Galiano Literary Festival.
The line-up for this 3-day festival includes; Welcome Reception, Workshops, Keynote Address, Panel Discussion, Readings, Illustrated Readings, and, an Author’s Dinner.
On hand for workshop facilitation, readings, etc, will be: Joëlle Anthony, Chris Arnett, George Bowering, Thea Bowering, Marilyn Bowering, Raffi Cavoukian, Aaron Chapman, Michael Christie, Brad Cran, Amber Dawn, Dina Del Bucchia, Catherine Greenwood, Jack Hodgins, Grant Lawrence, Eve Lazarus, Kathryn Para, Linda L. Richards, Bev Sellars, Audrey Thomas, Michael Wuitchik, David Zieroth, and, a couple as yet unannounced participants.
