WHO WE ARE

The AfterWords Literary Festival was co-founded by Ryan Turner and Stephanie Domet, and in the fall of 2019, AfterWords held its inaugural edition. Mona Awad, Caroline Adderson, Lynn Coady, Andre Fenton, Nolan Natasha, and Kamal Al-Solaylee are just some of the sixteen authors the festival brought together from Nova Scotia, across Canada, and beyond. In 2020, due to Covid-19, the festival will host live events online between September 30 and October 4.


AfterWords is primarily interested in presenting (and being in the audience for) conversations among writers about the ideas that push them forward, the experiences that formed them into writers, and what writing can tell us about how to be human. Our mission is to give those writers who choose to join us the very best experience that Halifax has to offer. We are dedicated to presenting authors from across a wide spectrum of background and experience, with a commitment to panel parity that broadly reflects gender, race, and ability.
