The Saskatchewan Festival of Words is getting ready for another year.

The famous literary festival kicked off this week with a tentative schedule for the four-day event that celebrates Canadian literature as an art form.

The Festival of Words is in its 23rd year. Executive director Sarah Simison is excited about the lineup of authors, poets, artists, and musicians signed on for 2019.

Over the four-day weekend, 25 authors will take part in over 60 events, including panels, workshops, readings, interviews, and performances. Trivia Night will be returning to Bobby’s Place, as well as the Poetry Slam Competition, which Simison noted is now a “pay what you can” kind of admission event.
