With August behind us, the When Words Collide organizers are already at work planning chapter 8 of our festival. We are hoping to do more in 2018 than we've done in the past and are looking for additional people to join our planning committee. If you would like to be a part of making great things happen, please contact us at:

Book Your Hotel Room
The Delta Calgary South will be able to accept online room bookings toward the end of next week. Hint: Book early; the past 3 years the hotel has sold out well in advance of the booking deadline.
Journey Through The Ages Banquet
Roman Centurions. Japanese Samurai. British Druids. Our Saturday evening banquet will have a Journey Through the Ages theme. Dress from any period is welcome, but not required. Banquet tickets may be purchased at time of registration or separately using the same form.
Once again we will have a full slate of Master Classes by our festival guests. Classes for 2018 will be offered prior to and following the festival. Details TBA.
