2013 marked the 12th anniversary of the Whistler Readers and Writers festival. And what an incredible event it was. Wrapping up this past weekend, the festival hosted thirty guest authors, and close to 1300 participants to an array of literary offerings including readings and panel discussions for the public and developmental workshops for emerging and experienced writers. Participants and guest authors alike commented on the organization of the festival, the beautiful surroundings, the range of topics offered, and all noted they'd be back. And so will we. Looking forward to welcoming everyone again October 17-19, 2014.
