Our annual weekend festival of professional development workshops, readings, a Literary Soirée, and an AGM. It is held in late May, attracting participants from the Maritimes and beyond.



Our outreach program of workshops and readings that take place across New Brunswick during the autumn.


Writing Competition

Awards several thousand dollars in cash prizes. It is open to all New Brunswickers as well as WFNB members across Canada. 


Writers in the Schools Program (WiSP)

The Writers in the Schools Program (WiSP) brings writers into the classroom to encourage reading and literacy. We manage WiSP in partnership with the New Brunswick Department of Education, which fully funds the program.


NB Book Awards

Each spring, the WFNB hosts the New Brunswick Book Awards,  in partnership with The Fiddlehead. It is a privilege to honour NB authors, and celebrate our homegrown talent.


We also conceived and produced Breaking the Word Barrier, a book created in collaboration with Laubach Literacy NB. It tells personal stories of struggles with literacy, as revealed through interviews of adult literacy students by WFNB members.
