The Writers' Federation of New Brunswick's annual spring gathering, formerly call our AGM and Literary Awards Banquest, WordsSpring brings together WFNB members, well-known authors, and people from the community to create an informative, educational, and all-out fun time.
And we also take care of some business: our AGM takes place on the Saturday morning of the festival and we hand out our Literary Competition’s awards. The location of WordsSpring 2012 will be in Sackville. Download WordsSpring 2012 Program & Registration
The Writers’ Federation of New Brunswick will present $1,700 in cash prizes to the winners of its 2012 Literary Competition at WordsSpring in Sackville, NB, May 4-6.. A total 181 entries were received, double the number of submissions from just two years ago.
Two of the award namesakes – Sheree Fitch and David Adams Richards – are among the authors who will attend WFNB’s semi-annual literary celebration. Fitch and Adams Richards were early members of the federation and credit the mentorship they received from WFNB’s founders to launching their writing careers.
