Writers Adventure Camp at The Point,
Whistler, BC May 31 st - June 4 th , 2017

Writers Adventure Camp at The Point Artist-Run Centre on beautiful Alta Lake is a unique immersive experience for emerging writers. Attend interactive workshops with award-winning professionals in your chosen genre while cross-fertilizing your creative output with exposure to other narrative arts.

WAC is both rigorous and fun – think Writers Boot Camp meets West Coast Arts Festival – and is unlike other creative-writing retreats across the country due to its setting and multi-disciplinary focus.

After spending the mornings in your main workshop group (fiction, memoir or script writing), experience a different hands-on workshop each afternoon, as well as hanging out on the dock with fellow writers, canoeing on the lake, and hiking or biking the trails in the area.

Evening events include an Opening Night BBQ, the annual Dinner Cabaret (participants perform/read alongside our professional headliners), and a Fireside Poetry Bash. Plus badges, prizes & more!

Send Us a Story & Launch Your Adventure! Enter our second annual fiction contest to WIN full tuition to the 2017 Writers Adventure Camp, PLUS resort accommodation & publication by The Walrus. (see Writing Contest)

“In my experience, events of this sort can be either funky or well-organized, but rarely both. You somehow pulled off completely shipshape funkiness.”

J.B. MacKinnon, 2016 faculty

We hope you’ll join us for the 3rd annual Writers Adventure Camp,
