Collingwood WORDSTOCK Literary Festival Begins This Friday

Lots of people have been saying to me lately that they haven’t seen me around as much as usual this summer and wondered why.  The answer is WORDSTOCK.  When I’m not busy working at my real occupation as a REALTOR®, I serve as the volunteer Chair of this made-in-Collingwood literary festival; now in its second year.

The festival kicks off on Friday with OFF THE PAGE: a cabaret style, live show that showcases words in all the various ways we express them.  The host this year is Canadian funnyman, Sean Cullen and features performances in music, dance, poetry, puppetry, drumming, storytelling and art in a unique and interactive setting.  Tickets are just $27.00 which offers superb value for a show if this caliber!  Full details can be found online at the WORDSTOCK website.

On Saturday, there are several events taking place in and around the downtown core and all are FREE.  There is something for everyone including line-ups that include author readings, poetry sessions, events for children and teens, workshops for aspiring writers and more.  New this year is a segment called OFF THE AIR with presentations by CBC radio personalities and authors, Terry O’Reilly and Dr. Brian Goldman.  A complete event schedule can be found on the website as well.

Last year’s festival was a huge success and we are expecting as much if not more of the same this year.  Come on out and join the festivities and don’t forget to get your tickets for Off The Page before they are gone.  See you at the show!
