Creative Industry Calendar
- October1925This year’s Vancouver Writers Fest will be brought to you on a variety of digital platforms. In addition to our flagship, week-long Festival, we also welcome you to our Special Events series, occurring weekly from September to November. Our physical stages may be replaced with Zoom screens or podcast episodes, but the ideas, mirth, collaboration, intrigue, discovery and excitement that stem from our conversations and performances remain.
Audience members can connect with authors via our live-streamed and recorded events or by listening to podcast episodes of specially recorded conversations. For our youth and educational audiences, we continue to offer Writers in the Classroom—albeit joining students remotely.
You can choose to attend one or many events this year, as ever, or buy a Festival Pass to access all events during our October Festival week. Today’s world is vastly different to that of 2019, but much remains the same, such as the transformative power of books and ideas. We’re grateful to you for joining us in this unprecedented year and for your continued support.

In this inspiring discussion, we'll hear from forward thinkers about the big picture view of the unique challenges and opportunities facing the media and arts sector, across Canada and beyond.
