Vision & Mission

Our Vision

The Eden Mills Writers’ Festival celebrates the power of words – whether written, spoken or sung – to ignite our imaginations and reveal worlds and ideas beyond our own experience.

We aim to encourage a culture of reading in today’s media-obsessed world by providing a venue for established and emerging writers to meet with their readers and to engage new fans.

Our Mission

We endeavour to inspire, enlighten and enchant by presenting a literary festival that provides stimulating, thought-provoking and entertaining programming for all ages—children, young adults and adults. We do so by presenting works of literary merit in a variety of genres in accessible and friendly environments.

We strive to nurture the next generation of writers by supporting aspiring writers through workshops, literary and poetry writing contests, and reading sets for yet-to-be published writers and poets.
