Literary Salons


Gather friends, family, and colleagues for an intimate soiree with your favourite Canadian writer. An elegant dinner party, weekend brunch, wine tasting experience, children’s tea party — these are just some of the many options the Writers’ Trust of Canada will help you plan.

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, David Chilton, Grace O'Connell, and Amanda Lang.

Lawrence and Miranda Hill

"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
