UFV Writers' Weekend
11 October 2013 - 13 October 2013
UFV Writers’ Weekend offers peaceful progress on the shores of Kawkawa Lake
Whether you’re polishing the great Canadian novel, working towards writing in a new field, or simply looking for a well-deserved nudge, consider the upcoming Writers’ Weekend retreat near Hope’s Kawkawa Lake.
Crafted by UFV’s Continuing Studies team, the Oct 11-13 Writers’ Weekend offers an all-inclusive package: accommodation, meals, and non-stop writing opportunities with a variety of workshops to choose from as well as writing contests with prizes throughout the weekend.
Led by UFV’s Allison Kilgannon and Michelle Vandepol, the retreat offers a range of workshops spread over three sessions, running Fri from 7-11:30 pm, Sat from 9 am-11:30 pm, and Sun from 9 am-2 pm.
“It’s for anybody, even if they’ve been published in a different field,” explains Vandepol.
“You’re home in time for turkey dinner, but still get an effective, peaceful, and constructive weekend to yourself.”
