The three-day festival, administered by the Peace Liard Regional Arts Council, will feature writers such as internationally renowned storyteller and author Richard Van Camp, Rhodes scholar and 2018 Griffin Poetry Prize winner Billy-Ray Belcourt, and Erin Moure, one of Canada’s most eminent and respected poets and translators.

Audience members will have the opportunity to listen to these writers, along with many regional writers, as they share their work and knowledge.

And that’s not all. Wild Words North will also showcase the region’s visual artists by displaying work inspired by the words of the festival’s feature writers. 

The opening of the Wild Words North Art Exhibit will take place Thursday, September 26 at 7 p.m. at Peace Gallery North. The exhibit will be held in conjunction with the opening of Wild Words North, and is open and free to all.
