Welcome to Our Newest Agency Fund:
We are pleased to welcome Kingston WritersFest as our newest Agency Endowment Fund.
“We wanted to establish an endowment fund in order to provide us with a reliable source of funding for our Festival in the long run. This will be our seventh year running the Festival, and we see creating this fund as part of our long term strategy to ensure we can continue to bring inspiring literatary experiences to Kingston,” says their Artistic Director, Barbara Bell.
Kingston WritersFest is a charitable cultural organization whose mission is to bring the best of contemporary writers to Kingston to interact with audiences and other artists for mutual inspiration, education, and the exchange of ideas that literature provokes.
They have hosted the Readers and Writers Festival in Kingston since 2009. The Festival brings together the very best local, national, and international writers of contemporary fiction and non-fiction: historians, explorers, journalists, and poets to explore the written word, and share stories and brilliant conversation. The 2015 Festival takes place September 23 – 27. For more information, visit their website www.kingstonwritersfest.ca.
