Writers Adventure Camp at The Point,
is on hiatus and will resume in June 2020

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 intense and fun – think Writers Boot Camp meets West Coast Arts Festival – and is unlike other writing getaways across the country due to its setting, varied activities, and multi-disciplinary focus. Not a retreat, but a creative re-boot!

After spending the mornings in your main workshop group ( experience a different mind-expanding hands-on workshop each afternoon, then hang 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), faculty industry panel (New!), and a Fireside Poetry Bash. Plus badges, prizes & more!

“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 next Writers Adventure Camp,
