We are overwhelmed by the support we received at this year’s Whisky & Words, our annual fundraiser.
With more than 350 people filling Performance Works in support of the Vancouver Writers Fest’s youth education programming, this was our very first sold-out year!

Pulp Literature Spring Book Launch
Friday, March 22 at 5pm
Join Pulp Literature for a very special double launch as they release both Pulp Literature Issue 22 and the long-awaited The Labours of Mrs Stella Ryman: Further Fairmount Manor Mysteries!
To hear of the loss of any colleague in this close-knit, emotive industry is always affecting. Sometimes, a writer leaving us strikes deeper, stirring a profound sadness from all corners of literature, and reminding us of the precious, precocious nature of life just as their work did.
A dram, a tip, a nip, a splash, a finger or a spot: there are many names for the ubiquitous spirit, often the tipple of choice for some of the world’s most celebrated authors, from Fitzgerald to Hemingway.
Next month, we have a real treat for all literary lovers. As part of the Vancouver Writers Fest and Vancouver Public Library’s Incite series, New Yorker staff writer and legendary author Susan Orlean will be joined by fellow author and journalist Carol Shaben to explore Orlean’s latest release, The Library Book.
Looking for a literary escape? There are many fabulous events happening in February and March. Submit your own events here.
