For the past 28 years, The Word On The Street has been renowned for the quality and diversity of its event programming. See the lineup of incredible Canadian literary talent that will appear at our 29th festival on September 23rd, 2018.
Organized entirely by teenagers themselves, Inspire Teen Reads challenges 13 to 18-year old competitors to convince a panel of authors, publishing professionals, and you, the audience, to pick up the books they will champion through 5-minute prose, poetry, or spoken word pitches.
Join judges Kenneth Oppel, Evan Munday, and Nancy Cooper, for this not-to-be-missed competition!
