Winterset in Summer
Literary Festival

Location: Eastport, NL

Established in 2001, the community-based four day Winterset in Summer Literary Festival was founded to showcase Newfoundland and Labrador writers and pay tribute to Sandra Fraser Gwyn, an award winning Newfoundland and Labrador author and journalist who passionately promoted the province’s culture. This year, the festival will start in style at the renowned Gander International Airport in the international lounge where a celebration of Flight will take off with readings from Jane Urquhart (The Night Stages) and more. The festival remains true to its roots with three sessions called Lyrical Voices, New Voices, and BMO Winterset Award Voices – the latter being a tried and true favourite, as it features the recent BMO WInterset Award finalists. With Winterset in Summer about to take place from August 8 to 11, we chat with Kathy Hodder to learn more about what’s in store in our latest feature…
