What's New

The addition of author and broadcaster Bill Richardson completes the 2016 roster (Mar 22)

We regret to announce that Wab Kinew will not be appearing at the 2016 Festival of the Written Arts. Mr. Kinew has recently announced that he will be running in a provincial by-election in Manitoba and is not able to confirm his summer schedule at this time. We will get back in touch with Mr. Kinew after the by-election to extend an invitation to come to the Sunshine Coast for a pre- or post-festival special event. We wish him well and congratulate him on stepping forward for public service. (Mar 10)
