ABOUT Our 5th Annual Festival
The 1000 Islands Writers Festival is our unique celebration of the power of storytelling through words, music and art in the charming historic town of Gananoque, Ontario. Join some of Canada’s most talented authors, songwriters and artists for vibrant performances, thought-provoking dialogue, shared ideas, and profound experiences to spark the creative spirit.
You’ll be inspired by our unique programming including our popular intimate living room sessions, afternoon conversations, workshops, exhibits and fabulous meal events.
Free and accessible author visits to Assisted Living Facilities, local schools and libraries are an integral component of the festival and part of the bond we form with our local community.
Year-round, we celebrate and nurture the creativity of our community members of all ages through opportunities for life-long learning in the arts: writing workshops, performance venues and mentorship through exposure to renowned writers and artists.
