Keynote Set for Friday September 23rd, 2022…

Hi Everyone.

Registration, not only for the Festival, but also the WCWF Writing Contest opens in just over two weeks.

Have you been working on your short stories and poetry? I hope so!

This year, we’re so excited to be meeting in person. We thought we’d inform you of our Keynote Speaker and reveal the rest of the Presenters on April 25th.

The Keynote Speaker for Wine Country Writers’ Festival for 2022 is Chief Clarence Louie of the Osoyoos Indian Band.

Chief Louie has recently written a book and will be sharing his experiences with everyone at the Opening Ceremonies at the Lakeside on September 23rd. We thank him for his generosity of time and expertise.

Chief Louie has spoken all over the world about his best lessons learned and his life experience. We are humbled to have him come to Penticton to speak to the writers attending the WCWF.

His book Rez Rules published by *McClelland & Stewart

*(my apologies I put the wrong publisher. It is now correct.)
