We’re hard at work preparing for the 2019 festival and we look forward to announcing our full lineup in June.

In the meantime, we’re excited to share details for our 2019 writing workshops for high school students. Join writers Brian Francis, Heather Smith, Kevin Sylvester and Najwa Zebian for an unforgettable writing intensive tailored to high school students. Complete details here.

And join us on June 1, 2019 for EUNOIA, presented by Guelph Dance in partnership with the EMWF. Eunoia is the shortest word in English to contain all five vowels, and the word quite literally means ‘beautiful thinking’. Contemporary dance and poetry fuse in this performance from Fujiwara Dance Inventions, inspired by Christian Bök’s award-winning book of conceptual poetry.
