"To Thomasina people were rivers, always ready to
move from one state of being into another. It was not fair,
she felt, to treat people as if they were finished beings.
Everyone was always becoming and unbecoming.”
- Kathleen Winter, Annabel
Festival updates: The 2015 Words on the Water Writers' Festival is taking shape and the organizing committee is excited to announce this year's writers, as well as some changes to our website.
1) 2015 Authors
Each year's festival is flavoured not just by the individual writers, but by the chemistry of the group as a whole. Earlier this week the festival committee finalised the eight authors who will be coming to Campbell River this spring. They are an inspiring blend of leading creative minds and we are pleased to introduce them to you here:
- David Carpenter
- Ivan Coyote
- Steven Galloway
- Sarah Leavitt
- Bernice Lever
- Derek Lundy
- Richard Wagamese
- Kathleen Winter
latest works can be found here.
2) New website and online ticket sales
The festival website has been refreshed with a new look and additional features, which has enabled us to offer ticket sales online for 2015. We hope this will be more convenient for festival goers, as well as make for smoother administration for our volunteers. Weekend and single session passes are available now and are already beginning to sell. They make excellent gifts for the literature lovers on your list!
Happy New Year!
