Kingston Writersfest

Kingston WritersFest comes UNBOUND for its 15th Annual Festival September 27-October 1 at The Holiday Inn Kingston Waterfront.

KWF’s lineup includes renowned authors Emma Donoghue, Alicia Elliott, Patrick deWitt, Britta
Badour, Michael Crummey, and Vincent Lam among the 55 authors appearing at the Festival.
The Big Idea returns with Carol Off and will focus on the future of CanLit, in a conversation with
publisher Kwame Scott Fraser of Dundurn Press, author/publishers Michael Hingston and Stuart Ross, and Stephen Marche, whose AI-generated novel The Death of an Author made waves across North American media. Festival favourites Michael Crummey and Heather O’Neill return for the 15th Annual, along with John Vaillant, Rosemary Sullivan, who was announced for this year’s Author! Author! event, and Ben McNally with a special anniversary edition of the Book Lovers’ Lunch.

This year’s anniversary and UNBOUND programming additions focus on experimental fiction and form, hybrid works, spoken word, stage readings, songwriting, and a KWF Art After Dark exhibit with book jacket designer Oliver McPartlin.
