5915 Taghum Hall Rd

Taghum, BC

Directions: Just west of Nelson.


Free, and accepts optional pay-what-you-may donations for admission.

Offered in English.

Wheelchair accessible, has gender-neutral washrooms, and is a relaxed performance.


It's a public literary reading born of blood, sweat, and tears, as the winners of Taghum Hall's two-day, juried, themed writing marathon strut their stuff on stage. These winners will read from works that responded to one of two themes revealed at the start of the marathon that took place Sept 23 and 24, crafted as fiction, creative nonfiction, or poetry series. Help celebrate creative spark at its finest! Taghum Hall is located just 10 minutes west of beautiful Nelson, B.C.
