Kindling Words West

KWW 2023
Wed. May 3rd - Wed. May 10th

Kindling Words West meets for a seven-day artist immersion experience at the Whidbey Institute. We take the ferry just north of Seattle and settle in among the tall northwestern pines for a week that will nourish our bodies and our creative spirits.

The late spring dates offer us many opportunities to explore the outdoors with the exquisite forest paths and beaches that are all around Whidbey island.
