Winterset in Summer

2015 Festival Weekend

"Eastport Beach"

Eastport Peninsula, Newfoundland
Eastport Beach

2015 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 2015 Festival dates are August 6th to August 9th.

Our 2015 Festival Program is bound to support Winterset in Summer's fast laying claim to be the premier literary festival in Newfoundland Labrador. Responding to overwhelming feedback from you, the audience, Lyrical Voices will kick off the Festival in traditional song-writing style on August 6 @8 p.m. Our overall theme this year will be a lighthearted one, with sessions focusing on the serious side of being a funny writer, the charm of Newfoundland wit and satire, and the art of dance and storytelling. A Creative Writing Workshop will be offered through a partnership with the Writers' Alliance of NL, and book launches will give an exclusive opportunity to hear readings from brand new books by two authors. True to its vision, Winterset in Summer 2015 will celebrate the independent writing spirit from visiting authors to our own award winning local writers. Come join in the discussions and catch the "Winterset book buzz"!
Check our Schedule for the full line-up!
