W ordSpring is our main annual writing festival and takes place in May. It offers great writing workshops, a Blue Pencil café, readings by national and local authors, book launches by WFNB members, open mic sessions and more.

WordSpring also features a Saturday night Literary Soirée, where our Writing Competition winners receive their awards and give readings. The soirée includes dinner, music and merriment.


It is with a heavy heart that the Writers’ Federation has decided to cancel WordSpring—formerly scheduled for May 22-24, 2020—due to the outbreak of COVID-19.  More info here.
