NorthWords NWT is a non-profit organization that supports the literary arts in the Northwest Territories. To do this we rely on the support of our membership. If you are interested in becoming a NorthWords NWT member, please contact us today. All members in good standing receive member benefits and the right to vote during the NorthWords NWT annual general meeting. Members can renew their $10 annual membership by e-transfer to or online.


Thank you for your support and your help in making the NorthWords NWT events a success!

We regularly require volunteer support for the annual NorthWords Writers Festival, GATHER: Spoken Word Open Mic Series and other events and workshops throughout the year. A call for volunteers for the 19th annual NorthWords Writers Festival 2024 will be posted here in the coming months.
