Experience the Intersection of Literature and the Arts
Whether it’s an edge-of-your-seat adventure, a fascinating memoir, or a tale of true love, stories are what bring us together and shape our understanding of our world. At the Stratford Writers Festival, we invite readers and writers to come together to experience stories – and meet the authors – through intimate and interactive events which can only be held in Canada’s Premiere Arts Town of Stratford, Ontario.
STRATFORD WRITERS FESTIVAL (An Annual October Festival)
"Where Readers & Writers Meet"
With thought-provoking panel discussions, Songwriters Circles, educational workshops, and inspiring literary lunches, the Stratford Writers Festival brings hundreds of avid readers and writers together around a common bond: their passion for stories.
APPETITE FOR WORDS FESTIVAL (An Annual October Festival)
"A Literary Festival with a Culinary Twist!"
Experience the literary and culinary arts in a new way at this innovative festival in Stratford, Ontario. At literary dinners, food is matched with an author's readings, so participants can actually taste the words they’re hearing. During workshops, participants can build their skills and increase their knowledge of both the culinary and literary arts. From a literary picnic-style farm lunch to a wine tasting seminar, come whet your appetite for literature during our collaboration with the Stratford Chefs School.
