The Vancouver Writers Fest

Granville Island

This year we welcome 100 plus authors to the 2018 Festival, taking place from October 15-21 on Granville Island and across Vancouver. Under the curatorship of our Artistic Director Leslie Hurtig, this year’s lineup is a collection of voices that explore some of the most pressing topics of our time. Through their works, these authors share unexpected stories, delve into current events and, ultimately, enrich our understanding of what it is to be alive today.
