Spring Edition: April 29 – May 4, 2021

The Ottawa International Writers Festival is dedicated to providing a welcoming, respectful and comfortable environment for all. The imagination is our most valuable renewable resource. So, twice a year we convene an international celebration of ideas to recharge our imaginations. From politics to poetry, science to music, history to thrillers, we celebrate the full diversity of the word and the gifted writers who guide us in our exploration of the world. Our year-round special events keep the ideas coming between Festivals.
