FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Third Annual Wild Words North Writing Festival will still be happening this year, but with a different approach. The Festival will be happening virtually, which means all events are free and available to anyone across the world.
The virtual event will be taking place from Friday, September 25 to Sunday, September 27, 2020, and will include songwriting to storytelling from all types of writers. It could be new student writers or a writer who has been creating for years, even decades.
On Tuesday, September 15th, there will be a panel discussing the decolonizing of Children’s Literature with speaker Christy Jordan-Fenton and other guest speakers.
The Festival Line-Up and schedule are available on the Peace Liard Regional Arts Council website.
Fort St. John singer and songwriter Naomi Shore helped to create the teaser video for the festival with video editing done by Jianna Neufeld, which is below.
Other Wild Words North events will also be available on their YouTube channel.
