The Writers Festival Spreading the Word school events inspire students to read by introducing them to exciting writers from around the world.
The BCTF have confirmed that field trips to Writers Festival events are still permitted during the job action. Suggestions regarding the handling of money from Richard Hoover, Director of the Field Service Division at the BCTF are as follows:
- Principals, if willing, would be able to handle the collection of students' money.
- If not principals, there may be PAC representatives who would be willing to collect the money.
- If neither the principal nor parents can collect the students' money, let the Festival know and we will make arrangements to accept payment for the tickets after the job action has ended, when the money can be collected some other way.
- If all else fails, students would be able to pay for tickets themselves at the event, as long as the Festival has advance notice.
The Writers Festival still has lots of great events with tickets available. Please see below a full list of events with ticket availability. Visit www.writersfest.bc.ca for more information.
For more info, call or email Box Office Manager Allison Sullivan on 604 681 6330 x107 or firstname.lastname@example.org

My friend and colleague, Adrienne Mason, has the great fortune to live and work in Tofino, BC, on the wild west coast of Vancouver Island. As well as writing children’s books and being the editor of Know Magazine, she is co-owner of a small, independent publishing company, Postelsia Press. They have just released their newest work, 18 Meditations on Chesterman Beach, — a beach near Tofino, which may be one of the most beautiful places on earth.
I can hardly wait to get my hands on the book. I know it will be fabulous (almost as good as being at Chesterman beach myself).
To order your own copy, or find out more about the book, go here.
