Support Young and Emerging Writers


Support Young and Emerging Writers

Cultivate the next generation of Canadian writers.

Every year, we ensure that young and emerging writers have a place at our festival. Secure their learning and growth by sponsoring twenty student writers to attend Youth Writing: An Interactive Workshop Series. Students will meet for three, hands-on workshop meetings to share their work with each other and with award-winning writers Heather Smith and Erin Bow. Your support is invaluable to the emerging creative writers who attend this program.


Thank you so much to our incredible donors! Because of your generosity, we will be able to fully fund all students who wish to attend our interactive workshop series. Further donations will ensure we can continue this program in 2021. Thank you for supporting youth writing!

Thank You to Our 2020 Donors!
