Whistler Writers! Creative Coaster Composition Competition
The Whistler Readers and Writers Festival proudly presents Whistler’s first ever alcohol-induced literary frenzy, with proceeds directly benefitting the Whistler Writer’s Festival.
A measly $12 includes a burger, a beer, some great entertainment, and a chance to win big!!!
- The Assignment: Compose a piece of proper prose, a bubbly blurb, a rambling rap, a mini-masterpiece, a pithy poem, a touching tome, a ditty, a doodle or a diatribe that could fit on the average coaster (max 500 words)
- The Catch: Somewhere in the piece there must be a reference—either thematically or tangentially—to a coaster. (A beermat? A person who lives by the sea? One who coasts? Doesn’t matter. We ain’t picky.)
- The Reward: Winners receive some tasty libations. We have gathered a stash from our generous sponsors and unwitting friends. And we’re even giving some of it away!
Whistler Brewery in Function Junction
Tuesday, Sept 11, 6:30 pm.
Readings begin at 8:00.
NB: You can come prepared or write it on the night
- The Judging: Winning Coaster Compositions are based on Audience Response-O-Meter. Participants must read their own work.
All proceeds support the Whistler Writers Festival, which runs October 12-14, 2012. For more information check out our website at www.theviciouscircle.ca
(Please note that the Vicious Circle Writers’ Group in no way advocates reckless consumption of alcoholic beverages. We always use coasters.)
