In the spring of 2013, in the Wakefield library, a few local readers and writers sat around the proverbial kitchen table and talked about developing a literary festival to add to the village’s rich cultural scene.
Writers Fete is one of the most anticipated cultural and literary events in the region. We work purposefully to build a linguistically diverse program that showcases local and national francophone, anglophone, ethnic and indigenous literary talent.
We are grateful for the extraordinary support of our funders, sponsors, partners, volunteers and supporters who make it all happen year after year. And we are especially pleased to welcome you—our guests—who come to the festival to connect with authors in provocative and exciting conversations that may just change your worldview.
So join in. Explore, discover, have fun...and be inspired!
