NorthWords Writers Festival

I am so excited to be a part of this Arctic event!

NorthWords 2010
June 3 – 6, 2010
Yellowknife, NWT

Over the years, there has been an increase in northern writers and stories: people who live and work here, and increasingly, Aboriginal writers who are now telling their stories. It is particularly important to encourage Northern stories to be told, as the move from an oral storytelling tradition to print form allows these stories to be heard across the North, as well as far away. NorthWords Writers Festival aims to engage residents of Yellowknife and the NWT in Canada’s rich and diverse literary culture with a particular emphasis on Aboriginal and Northern writers and stories.
