Writers at Woody Point Festival
Bonne Bay, Newfoundland
We are honoured to be participating in the 12th annual Writers at Woody Point Festival.
Authors appearing this year are: Margaret Atwood; Joan Clark; Bruce Cockburn; Steven Galloway;
Elizabeth Hay; Lawrence Hill; Elizabeth de Mariaffi; George Murray; Miriam Toews;
Des Walsh and Kathleen Winter.
The festival is firmly rooted in Newfoundland literature, attracting both writers from abroad and those nurtured here at home. During the festival, authors and musicians can connect with their audience in intimate venues, over dinner and drinks, or on a hike into the pristine hills. And they can soak up the area's own creative talent at exhibits of art and crafts, musical performances and impromptu after-hours celebrations that combine jam sessions, dancing and lots of laughter.
For more information about the festival visit the Writers at Woody Point
