The best writers festival in Canada is the Writers at Woody Point held in Newfoundland every August. What makes this writers festival better than other ones held in Canada, USA and the rest of the world is the laid back atmosphere. This festival started off as just an idea and was unknown in the writer's community but now in it's 7th year it has become one of the most popular.
Many authors that attend this event say this is their favorite because it's fun and it's a low pressure event. They get to present their books, meet new people, enjoy the beautiful Gros Morne National park and sample great seafood. Rumors are that tickets for the event sell out within the first hour of going on sale. Trying to get tickets to this popular writers festival is becoming next to impossible.
Perhaps in the future the events for the Writers at Woody Point will be able to accommodate more people due to the large demand for tickets.
