From our Contest Sponsor — Askew’s
For two decades, the Shuswap has hosted the annual Word on the Lake Writers’ Festival. This festival serves to encourage new, emerging, and seasoned writers to celebrate the full diversity of the written word, and the gifted writers who guide us in our exploration through their stories and poetry.
Through the years, Askew’s has stayed true to its founding principles of fostering community by providing value, contributing to the health of our community, and dedication and goodwill. We believe our sponsorship of the Word on the Lake Writing Contest since its inception as part of the festival ten years ago serves the purpose of providing value to our general community by supporting our creative community, which then contributes to the sharing of creativity and knowledge. The sharing of creativity can then produce goodwill by establishing a sense of connection with the listening, reading, and writing audience.
Askew’s ongoing presence in the community for the past ninety-four years has given us the opportunity to help support Salmon Arm’s rich population of writers and storytellers through sponsorship of this festival, which we are proud to support.
