  • Word Vancouver is a free annual literary arts festival. This year our festival will be virtually running from September 19th– 27th with special events leading up to the festival. Our mission at Word is to foster connectivity, inclusivity, inspiration and to bring the joy of the written word.

    The theme of Word Vancouver 2020 will be Dialogues: The conversations we should be having. Focusing the programming with a theme in mind allows for some fluidity in putting together authors for the types of conversations we want to be having. In essence, these readings are a dialogue between the different authors, the host and the audience. In part, this informs the public of what is out there in terms of new books, but is also about keeping a pulse on what people are interested in hearing about and having everyone be a part of the conversation.

    Since 1995 The Vancouver Book and Magazine Fair Society has produced Word Vancouver (forrmerly The Word On The Street Vancouver), the primary literary festival for Western Canadian book lovers and literacy enthusiasts. In 2013 the festival rebranded as Word Vancouver.

    The Vancouver Book and Magazine Fair Society strives to promote literacy by bringing the literature of Canadian, and particularly British Columbian, artists to as broad an audience as possible. Our goal is to attract people of all ages and backgrounds to a free festival in which each event is at once educational and entertaining.
