The Word On The Street Saskatoon Book & Magazine Festival
September 20, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
For the first time in 31 years, the Word On The Street Festival is going virtual. In light of the new challenges presented by global efforts to fight COVID-19, the team at the Word On The Street Saskatoon (a.k.a. WOTS) will continue to act as connectors and amplifiers for Canadian and Indigenous literature, even if that looks a little different this year.
So you can keep your calendars marked for September 20—and expect more surprises along the way with a FREE online festival of storytelling, ideas & imagination.
With your feedback, a plan is being developed a plan that will ensure the safety of attendees, exhibitors, authors, and volunteers while recreating the best-loved parts of WOTS in a new, virtual context, with unique programming, a digital marketplace, a dedicated stream for kids and families, and a virtual gathering space to connect with each other and celebrate stories.
Participate in numerous author readings, discussions and activities, and shop in a vibrant Exhibitor Marketplace.
Since 2010, The Word On The Street Saskatoon has proudly hosted some of Canada’s finest literary talent. Our tenth annual festival is shaping up to be another great one. Join us to celebrate on Broadway Avenue and online!
