Sunshine Coast Festival of the Written Arts

August 15 @ 8:00 am - August 18 @ 5:00 pm

The Sunshine Coast Festival of the Written Arts is honoured and grateful to carry out its work in the shíshálh swiya, the unceded and traditional homelands of the shíshálh People. We strive to be respectful allies through both word and action.

The SCFWA was founded in 1983 by Betty Keller and members of the SunCoast Writers Forge. Celebrating its 42nd year in 2024, the SCFWA holds true to the vision of its founders: to produce an annual literary festival featuring writers in Canada exclusively.


  • Bring diverse writers in Canada together with readers through a summer festival in Sechelt and on-going inclusive community programming
  • Nurture the Sunshine Coast as a literary and cultural community
  • Foster literacy and the development of the craft of writing
