Festival 2020: LitFest Goes Virtual (a co-festival with LitFest Alberta)

Over the summer we’ve been working hard to figure out how we can reconnect with our poetry-lovers and audience. This year, we are pairing with LitFest Alberta to present a virtual online co-festival featuring some of the poets we love! Most events at our joint festival are free, but some require registration and tickets. You can also purchase a 2020 – 2021 EPF Membership here. The Festival takes place between October 15th to 25th, 2020.

Please check out our full line-up here, and be sure to read up on the talented authors who are joining us to celebrate literature in its many forms.
