Northwords Writers' Festival

The NorthWords Writers Festival is a four-day literary festival that takes place in 

Yellowknife, NWT from Thursday to Sunday over the first weekend in June. A 

combination of readings, panel discussions, open mikes and workshops, the festival is the 

most-anticipated literary event in the North. Each year, well-known Canadian authors 

come north to share the stage with Northern authors for a magical celebration of 

Canadian literature. There is something for everybody who likes books and writing from 

a Family BBQ which highlights storytelling for children, to our famous Blush Open Mike

where both southern and northern authors take to the stage with tales of erotica, to our

more formal Gala Readings which features some of the premier authors of Canada.
