About the WFNB

Whether you write full-time — or just want to connect with others who love words — you will feel at home here. We are the only organization in New Brunswick devoted solely and passionately to supporting writers and storytellers at all stages of development and in all genres.

WFNB began nearly 40 years ago as a few friends gathered in a writers’ living room. Today, we’re a province-wide organization with members living in every corner of New Brunswick. We also have members from all Maritime provinces, Ontario, Quebec and Alberta--even a few expats in the US.

Our community includes memoirists, corporate writers, poets, mainstream writers, short story writers, magazine editors, novelists, screenwriters, newsletter creators, high school students, book editors, university students, book club readers, spoken word artists, playwrights, and journalists. All are welcome.
