Another Year, Another Fabulous Festival

October 6, 2014

Our 20th annual festival was a whale of a good time! Following events at The Paper Hound, Banyen Books & Sound, The Cottage Bistro, Christianne’s Lyceum, Historic Joy Kogawa House, VPL Central Branch, and SFU Harbour Centre from Wednesday, September 24 to Saturday, September 27, our main festival day returned to Library Square on Sunday, September 28 in all its glory. With clear blue skies above, festival attendees enjoyed entertaining performances, thought-inspiring readings, educational workshops, and more!

New to this year’s festival were the Words On Chapbooks venue, which featured chapbook exhibitors, readings, and a panel; and the Pop-Up Magazine Stand, where free magazines were given out to passers by in downtown Vancouver during festival week.

Did we mention that all the events were 100% free? Here at Word Vancouver, we believe that that is one of the best things about the festival, and that’s why we introduced our Keeping It Free campaign this year. Thank you to all the donors who donated to the campaign through Indiegogo. We appreciate your support of the festival!

We are already looking forward to next year’s festival, and we hope to see you all there again!
