An author's working life is a solitary one. No one can translate the data in a writer's head to a screen or notebook. The task is theirs alone, a one-person job. - Louise Mangos In the age of technology, the chance for a book lover meet face-to-face with a writer, poet, story-teller, spoken-word artist, illustrator, editor, or publisher and vice versa is a unique opportunity and the highlight of any literary festival. Please join us on Saturday, September 14th for our 25th anniversary celebration!
Word on the Halifax's Exhibitor Marketplace offers festival-goers a window into the Atlantic Canada Literary scene, presenting everything fom the largest publishing houses to the smallest niche magazines and everything in between: books, magazines, publishing houses, independent authors, children's books, and literacy.
The Word On The Street is committed to improving the reading skills and functional literacy of Canadians.
