Welcome to the 36th Sunshine Coast Festival of the Written Arts. We are proud to present this outstanding program of Canadian writers who will entertain, inspire, engage, and challenge us over the course of four evenings and three days, August 16-19, 2018. Stories build community. They remind us of what we have in common while they help us understand our differences. We hope you’ll join us to experience some of the rich, vibrant and powerful work being produced by diverse writers across Canada.
NOTE: Regardless of how you purchase tickets, you will need to pick up paper tickets printed by the Festival of the Written Arts. Tickets will be ready for pick-up on Wednesday, June 20. We will also hold them for pick-up until you arrive at the Festival in August. Please call the office to make special arrangements to have your tickets mailed.
Please also note that there is an error in the Festival brochure (hard copy). The event listing/author bios for Events #12 and #17 are transposed. Please refer to the information and schedule of events on this website and at www.writersfestival.ca.
