Reading Series

Spring Tides Reading Series

Spring Tides is an annual reading series held between March and June, showcasing new and established writers. The series presents four to five readings – typically two in St. John’s and two to three readings elsewhere in the province – featuring two writers each.

– Participation in this series is open to WANL members in good standing.
– Writers who read in this series last year are not eligible.

A call for Expression of Interest to read in Spring Tides will be released in early 2018.

Visiting Author Series

The Writers’ Alliance Visiting Author Series features out-of-province writers, offering local writers and the general public the opportunity to meet and network with other established Canadian authors. These readings are held in St. John’s, Corner Brook in partnership with the English Program at Grenfell Campus.The WANL Reading Committee selects notable local authors who in turn each invite an author of interest from another part of Canada. The Visiting Author Series is supported by funding from the Canada Council for the Arts, Literary Readings Program.

Last year we were delighted to host Tracey Lindberg and Anakana Schofield.
