Word on the Lake

It's coming up to the  
10th Annual Word on the Lake Festival for Readers and Writers  
in Salmon Arm, BC. 
I've been to this festival several times now and it is always amazing, well run, and fun. This year promises to be the best ever as they celebrate their 10th festival.

The organizers have listened to the attendees over the years and have booked a wide variety of presenters: a publisher, an editor, fiction, song writing, short story, young adult, poetry...the list goes on. And check out George Browning - a BC poet laureate! This festival will literally have something for everyone. You can see from the poster how much there is.

Also, each year, the Shuswap Association of Writers offers 10 x $100 bursaries to help offset the costs for people who need it. You can go to their web site for more details.

So, if you are lucky enough to be in the neighbourhood from May 24-26 and like books at all, whether reading or writing them, this will be the place to be. There is early bird registration and pricing until May 13. And the earlier you book, the better chance you have of getting your choice of blue pencil meetings.

FMI on anything to do with the festival, go to their website at www.saow.ca.
