Oh, no! I’ve been so busy reading and writing I forgot to blog about my favorite festival. It’s my Cinderella’s Ball. It’s my Christmas. The Whistler Writers Festival starts tonight with Whistler’s first Independent Book Awards Ceremony.

Following that at 8pm, is Comedy Quickies. A contest was held and the eight best 5-minute skits will be performed at MY Place. I am a finalist with “Pause on Harmony.” It’s been performed a few times, but Ira and Brandon, the producers, added a twist that has me laughing already. Come out and vote for mine, I mean, your favorite.

See whistlerwritersfest.com for more details on Cookbooks and Tasting at the Audain, “Speed Dating” with publishers and editors, workshops and readings. Stella puts together a festival nothing I’ve been to. Actually, I’ve never been to another festival, but who needs to when Stella brings the stars of Canadian Literature to Whistler?
