Fernie Writer's Conference

For any interested writers there is a writer's conference in Fernie, southern BC this summer. I hope to go, and they also have scholarships for applicants that are interested. It's a great opportunity as they will have the workshops, a festival and they will also have the opportunity for writers to meet publishers.

If you want more details, email me and I will pass on what I know. Their program is still under development, but I'll tell you what I know.
