Welcome to the 7th Annual LitFest New West

LitFest New West 2017 has an exciting festival planned. We have gone back to the basics with the theme Readers, Writers, and Community. Our aim is to bring together a variety of programming through readings, storytelling, workshops for kids and adults, and discussions.

We have an amateur writing contest, podcasters, poets, and award winning authors, and we are showcasing wonderful New Westminster community venues. Lit Cafés will take place in back rooms, bars, the library, coffee shops, conference rooms, and the open river market.

We encourage you to tour New West, be entertained, stimulate your own creativity, and meet new people.

So on behalf of the planning committee, welcome to LitFest 2017.

Keep smiling,
Janice Bannister
