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.
