NorthWords Writers Festival

May 30 @ 8:00 am - June 1 @ 5:00 pm

The NorthWords Writers Festival was founded after a group of literary enthusiasts envisioned a summer literary festival in Yellowknife that would support Northern and Indigenous writers by allowing them to share the stage with established writers from southern Canada. The first festival took place on the August long weekend that same year. The NorthWords Writers Festival Society was established the following year in May 2007. The annual festival continued to grow in popularity in 2008, the event was moved to June. Today the festival has been transformed from a three-day event that drew a few hundred literary buffs to a four-day festival that attracts around 1,000 people.
