A festival for all writers and readers – Join us April 29 to May 1, 2022

We’re moving down the highway! Join us at our new venue.

After more than 17 years at the Prestige Inn in Salmon Arm, the Word on the Lake Writers’ festival is changing location.

The Sorrento Centre is located in the heart of the Shuswap area in British Columbia’s scenic interior – just 32 km west of Salmon Arm and 70 km east of Kamloops, on the Trans-Canada Highway.

Tucked away on 24 acres on Shuswap Lake, the centre provides a peaceful site to enjoy a natural environment, with nature trails, a babbling creek, many quiet spaces and meeting areas, and the private beach is a short stroll through the forest. So much to do when not engaged in festival activities.

You will want to stay for the entire festival in one of three lodges with comfortable accommodation, or in the campground in one of the cabin style units or an RV or tent in partial service, and full service camp sites.
