Refer a Friend and Win!

If you've ever dreamed of getting away to somewhere peaceful and inspiring to write, or perhaps for some uninterrupted reading time, now is your chance!

The Creative Ink Festival is giving away a 3 night stay at Loon Point Cottage, a cozy oceanfront cottage on Quadra Island, BC. Situated on a bluff overlooking Discovery Passage, nestled among firs and cedars, Loon Point Cottage is the perfect place to recharge your creative batteries. Watch eagles and seals with your morning coffee, take a walk down to the private dock, or maybe just snuggle into one of the comfy chairs with a good book and a glass of wine. Do as much or as little as you want—this is your retreat!

All you need to do is refer a friend to the 2018 Creative Ink Festival. They can purchase any level of pass, or receive a discount pass through our "Referred by a Friend" program. Refer multiple friends and receive multiple entries. Simply email us for the "Referred by a Friend" discount link, or when your friend makes a purchase of any other pass. In addition, anyone who purchases a Unicorn Level pass before May 4th will be entered into the draw.
