The Denman Island Readers and Writers Festival has become a much-anticipated annual event over the past few years. Drawing from celebrated authors to budding literary stars, this fabulous festival has something for everyone who is fascinated by the written and spoken word. Denman’s own coterie of  talented writers, from novelists to poets, are always well represented, and the Island’s aspiring young writers are encouraged to participate as well. For those who love to write and those who love to read, it’s an opportunity not to be missed.
