The pandemic has meant our world's contraction, but for many this has led to an even deeper desire to seek out storytelling and connection through books. The 2020 Vancouver Writers Fest program includes 40+ virtual events designed to entertain, provoke and inspire. The online festival takes place from Oct. 19 to 25.

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 to achieve this include both year-round programming and our flagship, annual literary festival: one of the largest and most prestigious in North America that brings tens of thousands of audience members to see events with local and international authors during one week in October. Our other programs include Incite: a free, spring reading series in partnership with Vancouver Public Library; Youth Education Outreach programs for schools across B.C.; and a youth writing contest.
