The Vancouver Writers Fest is one of North America’s preeminent literary festivals. We feature year-round programming for all ages, and an annual flagship Festival happening in the third week of October. The Vancouver Writers Fest blends events featuring emerging writers with literary superstars such as Margaret Atwood, Zaide Smith, Marlon James, Ian Rankin, Malcolm Gladwell and Ian McEwan. We connect people to exceptional books, ideas and dialogue that ignite a passion for words and the world around us.
