April 8-10, 2016
Welcome to the 2016 Okanagan Valley Writers Festival at the Shatford Centre in Penticton, B.C.
You’ll find dynamic workshops by successful authors on various aspects of writing compelling fiction and creative nonfiction, as well as writing poetry, songs, and screenplays. You’ll also receive useful tips for querying agents and publishing your own works.
Each 60-minute time slot will offer activities to choose from (workshops, panels, readings). Workshops provide practical, hands-on advice for honing your writing skills and include examples, exercises, and handouts. You’ll have an opportunity to have editors, agents, and authors read your first pages for our “Live Action Slush” panel, and you can also sign up for a 15-minute one-on-one critique of your first 5 pages.
We look forward to seeing you this spring to bring writers, authors, and book-lovers together.
