The second weekend of August might be a good one to stick around town, as the 4th annual WHEN WORDS COLLIDE festival descends upon Calgary to bring together a huge range of readers and writers from all over the world. Regardless of the genre you're trying to master or love to read, When Words Collide has more than 60 expert panelists/presenters lined up to share tips and information on everything from science fiction to historical fiction to nonfiction, from inspiration to editing.
It appears as though this year's program of workshops, pitch sessions, panels, social events, blue pencil cafes, and merchants has caught on and filled up quick, but they are now taking names for a waiting list, the 'Merchants' Corner' is open to the unregistered public, and on the Thursday leading into the big weekend you can catch 5 featured WWC guests live at the Fish Creek Library.
Thursday, August 7
7 - 8:30 p.m.
Second Floor Open Area - Fish Creek Library
Join us for readings by international bestselling authors: Jack Whyte, Jacqueline Guest, Brandon Sanderson, D.J. McIntosh and Mark Leslie.
The authors will follow up the readings with a question and answer and autograph session.
