Events Description

Wordfest™ connects Calgarians with life-changing ideas, year-round and at the 25th annual Festival, featuring 80+ writers.

Wordfest sparks lively, illuminating and meaningful conversations between Calgary’s readers and the world’s most engaging writers.

Wordfest is turning 25 this year and we were planning an ambitious live festival in September to celebrate our anniversary, featuring 25 authors in 25 events. But everything is different now. So we’ve decided to try something different. Something that could ONLY happen online.

We started with a question: Who? Whose turn should it be in the spotlight? Who can blow it all up? Who can pull us back together? We know is that is no longer about one voice, one vision, one curator, one way forward. We know that we’re in this together.

Imagine, instead, that we create something different: a series of genuine connections that add up to a kind of daisy chain. A daisy chain of 13 weekly online events – authentic, unexpected author pairings – every Tuesday night between September 8 and December 8.

    I was wondering if this event needed volunteers.
