The Arts Council of New Westminster, New Westminster Public Library, Douglas College and the Royal City Literary Arts Society are excited to present the 2016 edition of LitFest NewWest.

The festival will be taking place May 13th-19th 2016 in various venues across New Westminster, British Columbia. 

The theme for this year is Diverse/City and we are celebrating that theme with three specific events:

  • A two month exhibit (April 4th-June 3rd) at the Community Art Space at the Anvil Centre.  Opening reception April    15th 5:00-7:00pm.
  • A Multilingual Poetry event at the Aboriginal Gathering Space at Douglas College on Saturday May 14th 2:00-4:00pm
  • A Cross Cultural Communication Workshop at Century house on Wednesday May 18th. This will be an interactive, conversational workshop relying on stories from participants.

On Saturday May 14th at Douglas College we will be hosting a literary marketplace featuring local authors and vendors, author workshops, author readings (featuring Ujjal Dosanjh at 4:30pm and Grant Lawrence at 5:30pm) and wrapping up with a singer/songwriter panel discussion on the art of songwriting.
