Sunshine Coast Festival of the Written Arts

In two days, we will gather to celebrate this Festival’s 35th anniversary and the wonderful Canadian writers who inspire, enlighten, educate, entertain and sustain us all year long. We also celebrate you, our audience of readers, who buy tickets and books and support Canadian writers and literary festivals!

First things first: Tickets to most events are available! While the passes sold out quite early on, tickets to 17 events are still available. Current information is on our website at The next event to sell out is our closing night concert with the magnificent Shari Ulrich, Kirby Barber and Julia Graff (Sunday, August 20 at 7:30 p.m.). The authors’ bios and ticket purchasing details are on the website.

Office hours during the Festival: Our door will be open at 8 a.m. and will close just after the last event of the evening begins. You can reach us by telephone at 604-885-9631 or by email at in**@wr*************.ca.
