The sharing of words through story, poem and song has always brought communities together in times of fear and change. So, join us for Weekend of Words, a free virtual literary festival to celebrate the written word and those behind it.
The festival will feature workshops, panels and talks during the day and top it off with nightly readings from incredible poets and authors. The festival is free but donating to the writers, performers and facilitators is highly encouraged!
The mission of this event is to bring together the literary community during these difficult times. Help us spread the word, and share it with your community.
