2019 Festival

Exceptional Books & Ideas in 80+ Events
October 21 – 27, 2019

The Vancouver Writers Fest’s flagship Festival welcomes local and international writers to stages on and around Granville Island for a week of literary events and immersive conversations for all ages.

As Artistic Director Leslie Hurtig says of this year’s Fest, “We have created a week of events that will entertain and inspire hungry minds; from playful school-group forays into spoken word and graphic novels, to in-depth conversations with some of today’s best writers and thinkers. The Vancouver Writers Fest’s 2019 offering has something for everyone.”

Our 2019 Events Lineup is live! The full program guide is also now available online and in print at select vendors across Metro Vancouver.
