Vancouver Writers’ Festival
The Vancouver Writers Fest is a registered non-profit, charitable organization that operates with the support of public sector funding, ticket sales, advertising revenue, corporate sponsorships and donations.
he celebration takes place in the cultural oasis of Granville Island, and continues throughout the year with programs including: our free, Incite reading series at the Vancouver Public Library; special events with leading writers; and Youth Education Outreach programs at Lower Mainland schools and in small BC communities.
Our vision: A world in which the transformative power of books and ideas is the foundation of an empathetic, inspired and just society.
Our activities to achieve this include both year-round programming and our flagship, annual literary festival: one of the largest, and most prestigious, in North America which brings tens of thousand of audience members to see events with local and international authors during one week in October.
