Welcome to the North Shore Writers’ Association!

The NSWA is a fellowship of writers who are at all stages in the writing journey, from novice to professional, published and unpublished. It is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to nourishing the literary community through teaching and sharing skills.

For the 2022-23 season, we have returned to the North Vancouver City Library! We are thankful that the West Vancouver Library generously hosted us in the Welsh Hall West for our meetings while the North Van City Library underwent renovations.

Our next Guest Speaker of 2023 will be Cea Sunrise Person. She will speak about her two highly acclaimed memoirs, North of Normal and Nearly Normal.
In the late 1960s, Cea’s grandfather, Papa Dick, uprooted his family to the Canadian wilderness in his attempt to abandon civilization. See our Events page for more details.

The festival is back LIVE and IN PERSON, April 27 – 29, at the West Vancouver Memorial Library. Registration is required. More information is available at https://northshorewritersfestival.com/. NSWA members will be hosting a session on Sat. Apr 29, From Conception to Completion: The Process of Writing.

NSWA Annual Writing Contest is closed to submissions for this year!
Winners will be announced during the North Shore Writers Festival and then posted on our website under Activities/Annual Writing Contest.
