Whistler Writers Group ( The Vicious Circle )

The Whistler Writers Group (The Vicious Circle) was founded in 2001 and became a non-profit organization in 2005. The group includes over 150 members. From its inception the group has promoted the literary arts, provided a forum for local writers to develop their craft within the community, and sponsored literary events for readers and writers alike, including the annual Whistler Readers and Writers Festival and the Writer in Residence Program.


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
