After a 10-year hiatus, Write on Bowen, a festival for readers and writers, is returning to bowen island.


The Write On Bowen Committee, in partnership with the Hearth and the Bowen Island Library, are planning a small-scale version presenting local

authors, poets, playwrights, bloggers and other talented islanders, with plans to once again build the festival into an annual attraction. On both Saturday and Sunday, participants are invited to sign-up for interactive writing workshops, choosing one from three different options each day, scheduled to run from 1 pm

to 2:30 pm. Then, from 2:30 pm to 5 pm, attendees come together to enjoy a reception and presentation that includes (depending upon the afternoon): book readings, spoken word, poetry and other performances.
