About Literary Arts Windsor

The mission of Literary Arts Windsor: Promotion, Performance, Publishing is to introduce Canadian books and authors to residents and students of Windsor and south-western Ontario in such a way as to inspire them to recognize, read, and celebrate Canadian authors.

Literary Arts Windsor is dedicated to education, understanding, and appreciation of the literary arts by providing performances of an artistic and literary nature in public places, senior citizens’ homes, performance areas, theatres, and educational institutions. We also provide seminars on topics relating to such performances.

Our vision is that by continuing to introduce and showcase Canadian literary talent to our community, the written word, the intangible quality of a Canadian voice, and the love of books will continue to be relevant in an increasingly digital world.

Literary Arts Windsor is a non-profit incorporated body, incorporated in 2003. The charitable registration number is 887356905RR0001. The organization is completely volunteer run. The Bookfest Windsor planning committee is a sub-committee of Literary Arts Windsor, and is also wholly volunteer run.
