Where Readers & Writers Meet

The DigiWriting Stratford Writers Festival, held in the artistic and literary town of Stratford, brings writers together with readers where they can interact, discuss, and share literature through author readings, panel discussions, Q&As, author book signings, and writer workshops. The festival features international and Canadian award-winning authors, and emerging Canadian and local writers.


Appetite for Words Festival

Appetite for Words Festival | October 25-28, 2018

A Literary Festival with a Culinary Twist!

Experience the literary and culinary arts in a new way at this innovative festival in Stratford, Ontario. At literary dinners, food is matched with an author’s readings, so participants can actually taste the words they’re hearing. A literary cocktail tasting and a literary coffee pairing experience are also anticipated events. During workshops, participants can build their skills and increase their knowledge of both the culinary and literary arts. From a literary picnic-style farm lunch to a wine tasting seminar, come whet your appetite for literature during our collaboration with the Stratford Chefs School.
