Stretching along a magnificent expanse of lakeshore, steep evergreen valleys and glacial snowfields in British Columbia, Canada, the Nelson Kootenay Lake region is a destination unlike any other, anywhere.

This is a calm, wondrous part of the world, quietly famous for its trademark mix of culture, adventure, history and undeniably authentic personality. The region's true colours range from blue collar to tie-dyed.
In lots of ways, it's a truly super, natural place...
This year’s theme of the Elephant Mountain Literary Festival (EMLF) is Intersections: Geography, Genre, Genius. Join a host of internationally celebrated Canadian presenters in Nelson, British Columbia, this July as we explore what happens in the crucible of the imagination. What factors converge to produce inspiration, creativity, and productivity? Appreciate what happens when different literary geographies and perspectives meet. Join us as we explore literary intersections at this year’s events, panels, and readings.
