About the Stratford Writers Festival 2018-07-10T22:30:17+00:00

At the Stratford Writers Festival, we believe that #StoriesMatter

Whether it’s an edge-of-your-seat adventure, a fascinating memoir, or a tale of true love, stories are what bring us together and shape our understanding of our world. At the Stratford Writers Festival, we invite readers and writers to come together to experience stories – and meet the authors – through intimate and interactive events which can only be held in Canada’s Premiere Arts Town of Stratford, Ontario.
