Creative Ink Festival
2017 Dates Announcement:
March 31st - April 2nd, 2017!

Our Sincerest Gratitude

A huge THANK YOU to Calgary World Fantasy for providing a grant to help cover 2016 operations costs and thereby making it possible for the festival to move forward. With this decision to host a 2017 event comes a request for help. It's extremely difficult for volunteer organizations to be successful without the aid of volunteers and sponsors. Email me at if you're interested in helping out the festival in 2017!

Stay tuned for more 2017 news!

2015 Author Guest of Honour,

"Sandra Wickham's Creative Ink Festival is an impressively well organized and professionally run event. If this year's festival is what she can accomplish in her inaugural year, I can't wait to see where she takes this event next. I'm incredibly honored to have been part of this year's festival and look forward to participating in it for years to come."
