If you have not been to this unique festival set in the heart of Woody Point, Gros Morne National Park, you should seriously consider planning a trip. The festival attracts writers from abroad and the talents of those close to home. This year, authors include Joseph Boyden, Lisa Moore, Michael Crummey and Anthony De Sa. With the addition of music and readings around town and in the wild, Writers at Woody Point offers far more than the usual literary festival.
The event is hosted by CBC Radio’s Shelagh Rogers, host of “The Next Chapter”. Check out the new festival website and have a look at the full schedule.
