Winnipeg International Writers Festival
What is Thin Air? Each September, the Winnipeg International Writers Festival welcomes writers from Canada and around the world for a week of readings, lectures, interviews, conversations, book launches, and other events. With programming for adults and children, in English and in French, in the city and outside the city limits, THIN AIR is an infusion of energy into the thriving literary culture of the province. The Winnipeg International Writers Festival programming spills over into the off-season as well, allowing us to showcase special writers and events at Winnipeg venues throughout the year. Mission Statement: Our purpose is to strengthen and support a broad reading community by curating and presenting an annual festival celebrating writers and reading, and by acting as a reading resource. To serve those ends, we showcase quality writing, we create forums for conversation, creativity, and learning, and we share our enthusiasm.
