Vancouver Writers Fest
January 17, 2022
They can delight, inspire, provoke, comfort and unite—as do the authors, journalists and poets who wield them. At the Vancouver Writers Fest we encourage readers of all ages to explore the power of storytelling, and books, through our dozens of events with local and international writers.
Our activities include both year-round programming and our flagship, annual literary Festival: one of the largest and most prestigious in North America. Tens of thousands of readers visit the cultural hub of Granville Island and venues around Vancouver to connect with local and international authors during this week-long event.
Throughout the year we offer free and paid events with established and emerging authors, in addition to youth education opportunities.
Mission: We connect people to exceptional books, ideas and dialogue through year-round programming that ignites a passion for words and the world around us.
Vision: A world in which the transformative power of books and ideas is the foundation of an empathetic, inspired and just society.
