Help us spread the word

Request for Graphic Design Services Proposals • Deadline for proposals is April 29 2022

AfterWords Literary Festival is in search of graphic design services to help both the fourth annual festival, and the second annual virtual writers’ conference develop a bold visual presence. 

The virtual writers’ conference happens online via Zoom Saturday September 24 and Sunday September 25. The hybrid festival (in person and online events) happens in Kjipuktuk/Halifax from Saturday September 24 to Sunday October 2.

Our festival and conference programming will be locked in by early May, and we’re keen to have a graphic designer in place by then as well. We’ll begin advertising the conference by June 6, and the festival in mid-July, so we’ll be looking for the conference poster to be ready by May 28 and the festival poster by July 5, and a kids’ programming poster by July 26.


About AfterWords:

AfterWords Literary Festival and Conference is a multi-day event in Kjipuktuk/Halifax for readers and writers of all ages, featuring conversations, readings, workshops, and celebratory events in a variety of venues across the city. AfterWords Literary Festival envisions an equitable society where citizens are equipped with the tools and the passion to read, write, and tell stories, are empowered to consider other points of view, and where the work of artists is respected as a necessary pillar of democracy. Our sustainable festival offers accessible year-round programming and opportunities, in order to foster a love of words, books, and stories; to develop aspiring writers of all ages and backgrounds, especially those historically underserved; and to inspire people of all backgrounds to read, learn, and create. We believe that books are an excellent delivery device for fresh and challenging ideas, and that a community of writers and readers can be part of building a better future.

AfterWords is a charitable organization. We work on building partnerships with government, local businesses, universities, and foundations in order to build a sustainable festival that is welcoming to all.

Compensation: $2,800-$3,600

Deadline for Proposals: April 29, 5pm AT
