Diana Gabaldon

Famed author Diana Gabaldon was scheduled to be a guest last year, but was unable to make it due to scheduling conflicts with the TV series based on her Outlander novels.

We are pleased to announce that Diana WILL be able to make it this year.

More information will be available soon.

When Words Collide Wins Another Award

Aurora AwardWhen Words Collide is thrilled to receive the 2014 Aurora Award. A huge thank you to all of the volunteers and attendees who make our festival for readers and writers a success.

2015 Planning Meeting

When Words Collide is a victim of its own success. We have grown so quickly over 4 years that our organizing committee can't keep up.

We are currently looking for excited people to help us plan and deliver When Words Collide 2015. If you would like to help, please let us know or attend our AGM on October 19 in the Community Room of the MacLeod Trail Co-op (8818 MacLeod Trail South) from 10 AM - 12 PM.

Note: Planning meetings are usually on the 2nd Sunday of the month

That's a Wrap

It's over for another year, but we're already planning next year's festival.

The web site will be updated a piece at a time over the next week or so, don't worry if some things look a bit odd. It'll sort itself out.

We're still calculating, totalling and generally shovelling our way out from under the paperwork, so if you bought a membership for next year don't worry. You'll show up some time in the near future as the figures become available to your humble web master.
