This year also saw the first Kawartha Lakes Writers Festival. The event was a collaboration with Kawartha Lakes Arts Council and the Kawartha Lakes Public Library. Three writers presented free workshops for anyone to attend, and 8 writers offered their books for sale and presented their work in the Kawartha Art Gallery.

Many thanks to these organizations and writers for creating this event!

Hope to see you again next year!
