The Creative Ink Festival is based on a fantastic event in Calgary, When Words Collide. This year it’s happening August 12-14th. I would encourage you to attend if you can, but get your membership right away! They’re selling out.
“When Words Collide is an annual non-profit festival designed to bring readers and writers together in a celebration of the written word. Up to 10 tracks of programming, beginning at 1 PM on Friday and running through 5 PM Sunday, offer informational, educational, and social activities covering a wide spectrum of literature including Mystery, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Romance, Historical, Literary, Script-writing, Poetry, Comics, and Non-fiction. Roughly 650 readers, writers, editors, publishers, agents, and artists attend with over 200 presenters in our program.
Organizers and presenters alike volunteer their time and talents to make When Words Collide as accessible and varied as humanly possible.”
If you attend, I’ll see you there!
