NorthWords Workshop 2016 with Hayden Trenholm

NorthWords 10th Anniversary Festival 2015

Let’s Celebrate!  28 – 31 May

So many thanks to all those who came out to celebrate our 10th birthday.  Here are some pictures by Valerie Conrad.  If you have any to share on this website, email to jacqbrasseur@gmail.com.



For the past 10 years NorthWords nwt has been dedicated to Northern and Indigenous writing.  We know there are hundreds, even thousands, of northerners who have a story to tell and it is our mission to get those stories read, written and heard, in the north, throughout Canada, and beyond.
