About the Shuswap Association of Writers
Founding their organization in 2004, the Shuswap Association of Writers based in Salmon Arm near the shores of the stunning Shuswap Lake, created the Word on the Lake Festival to celebrate writers in the community. They have now expanded to offer other events throughout the year to support BC’s writers. Their main philosophy is to provide events that enrich the BC Interior’s cultural life, especially when it comes to the written or spoken arts.
