Tickets for the 2020 Whistler Writers Festival went on sale August 31, and just to clarify what “on sale” means – most events are by donation, or free (if that’s your current capacity), while the keynote events like the Literary Salon, Saturday Night Gala and workshops are by donation, with a suggested minimum of between $10 and $25. With the event taking place online this year, there are literally no barriers to you checking out the action, encountering a favourite writer, or giving your closet writer self a little moment to shine. (You can even technically attend the Festival from your closet.)
for more details about the 19th annual Whistler Writers Festival returns in a special virtual format on October 15 – 18, 2020.
