Hi Everyone. I have some information and a few updates for you today.
Check out the Federation of BC and Yukon Writers Summit…Happening NOW
First of all, one of supporters, The Federation of BC Writers (FBCW), are currently hosting the BC Writers Summit and registration is open. You can check it out HERE.
A rep from the FBCW will be joining us in Penticton in September for the Wine Country Writers’ Festival. We’re very excited to have them on board and let them share all the different ways they support writers.
Registration for the Wine Country Writers’ Festival will open April 25, 2022.
Cost will be $139C and you’ll have to pay by PayPal or E-transfer. This is an early bird price and will provide access for Opening of Festival, Keynote, Festival kick off, readings from the presenters. There will be a no host bar. That price also covers workshops all the next day, wine tasting, shopping, panels, slush…omg… Perhaps we’ll even sing a bit…lol. It’s going to be pretty dang awesome.
Number will be limited.
The Writing Contest will also open on April 25, 2022.
Sharpen those pencils! Entry fee is $15 for one or 2 for $25
You can enter in short fiction, short nonfiction, or poetry.

Also coming soon….
If you want to promote your book, your magazine, your website, your store, your gallery, your singing career…whatever… one of the best ways to get the word out there is through sponsorship and sharing.
You do not need to be a participant in WCWF to do a SideBar Sponsor, but the organizers reserve the right to final decision of inclusion.
This year we’ll be offering anyone the opportunity to be a sponsor for WCWF.
There will be categories you can choose from and be recognized for.
More info coming… soon…very soon.
We hope you’re enjoying the Easter long weekend.
We’ll be in touch soon.
