And don’t forget the dates: the digital festival runs Friday, May 7 to Sunday, May 9 on ZOOM and features a number of workshops hosted by a variety of accomplished authors, songwriters, poets, scholars and editors – check them out on the website.
Longtime Vancouver criminal lawyer and festival favourite Michael Slade and friends will perform one of his suspenseful shock theatre productions on Saturday of the festival.
On Friday night at the festival, get a glimpse of of what’s to come when presenters share some of their work at the always-popular Café Lit.
So go online, get the goods and sign up starting this Friday.
And, if you’re entering the annual Askew’s Word on the Lake Writing Contest, you have until midnight Feb. 28 to email your entries.
