Literary Salons


Gather friends, family, and colleagues for an intimate soirée with your favourite Canadian writer. Whether it's an elegant dinner party, a weekend brunch, or a cocktail party, the Writers’ Trust of Canada will help you plan your one-of-a-kind event in support of Canadian writers and writing.

Adrienne Clarkson

"We were pleased to host a Literary Salon with the Rt. Hon. Adrienne Clarkson in celebration of her latest book, Room for All of Us. We had a winning combination of an articulate and attractive writer, guests interested in meeting her and hearing her speak about her experiences, and the Moose Factory gallery setting —  all of which added up to  a lively and profitable event."

Charles Pachter and Marcia McClung, Event Hosts, May 2012

Create a Conversation about Ideas

An entertaining social occasion becomes something more with a charismatic, informative speaker from the writing world. A variety of writers have participated in the program, including Adrienne Clarkson, Lawrence and Miranda Hill, Joseph Boyden, Jeff Rubin, Miriam Toews, Yann Martel, and Michael Crummey. The Writers’ Trust will consider your interests, propose a list of ideal literary guests and then work with you to secure a date and the author’s involvement. 

Lawrence and Miranda Hill

"The Writers' Trust is an exceptional organization. Working with them to host a Literary Salon featuring the lovely and gracious authors Lawrence & Miranda Hill was seamlessly organized and pure joy. Our guests experienced an intimate and engaging evening with these talented individuals and have raved about the event ever since."

Judith Hinchman, Event Host, September 2012
