2014 Festival Program

Winterset in Summer is Newfoundland and Labrador's unique literary festival designed to celebrate the writers of our splendid province. Meet new and established authors and hear them talk about their writing with celebrity hosts.

The 2014 Festival dates are August 8th to August 10th. This year we will kick off the Festival with a pre-festival benefit concert for the Beaches Library on Thursday, August 7th. Our Lyrical Voices The Blue Drop (Holly Hogan and Allan Byrne), Nicholas Saunders and Matthew Byrne will perform at this concert.

Check our Festival Schedule tab for our full line-up of fabulous writers.

Returning this year will be our Founding Host Michael Enright. On May 9, 2014 Memorial University awarded Michael an honorary doctor of laws degree in recognition of "his significant contribution to broadcasting in Canada and the literary scene in Newfoundland and Labrador". Congratulations Michael!

The Festival will again partner with Terra Nova National Park with a Children's Writer at the Park from August 4th to 7th. This year's writer is Susan Pynn Taylor. Please check the Outreach tab for more information.

The Festival sponsored Children's writer Sheree Fitch in a school outreach program from May 12th - 16th in the Gambo/Glovertown/Eastport area schools. See the Outreach tab for more info.
