WRITE ON BOWEN
FESTIVAL OF READERS & WRITERS
Saturday, September 16 & Sunday, September 17, 2023
Welcome Back to Write on Bowen
On August 6 and 7, writers and word lovers will gather at the Cove Commons for the literary event of the year. Write On Bowen, in partnership with The Hearth and the Bowen Island Public Library, presents workshops and a gala evening of readings by both local and off-island writers and poets.
Eight workshops in four time slots are offered over two days, to be held at the Library Annex and Copper Spirit Distillery, generous sponsors of the festival. With a Full Festival Pass, participants register for four workshops and can also attend a lunchtime panel and the Saturday night Festival Gala.
Come mix and mingle and share your passion for the written and spoken word. We look forward to welcoming you to this year's festival!
