The Vancouver Writers Fest – Oct 15-21

In the heart of Vancouver, on Granville Island as well as at three off-island venues, lies an outstanding opportunity for readers and writers to immerse themselves in writerly conversations about books.

A massive number of authors attend this festival. Events are organized by genre.

Participants can choose from the following:

Adventure, Can Lit, Current Affairs, Film & TV, Feminism, Humour, Indigenous, International Authors, Interviews, Memoir, Non Fiction, On Writing, Performances, Poetry, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Thriller/Crime and Youth.

School groups are encouraged and workshops are organized specifically for youth. Those events look fascinating.

If I had the opportunity to go, I would listen to:

Miriam Toews – internationally celebrated award-winning author, who always delivers poignant, personal writing.

Jodi Picoult – best selling author of twenty-five books who tackles provocative current issues.

Kate Atkinson – a master of many genres, evoking reflection, passion and intrigue.

Check it out. There’s something for everyone! Has anyone ever attended this event? Does it appeal to you?
