Wordfest is turning 25 this year and we were planning an ambitious live festival in September to celebrate our anniversary, featuring 25 authors in 25 events. But everything is different now. So we’ve decided to try something different. Something that could ONLY happen online.

We started with a question: Who? Whose turn should it be in the spotlight? Who can blow it all up? Who can pull us back together? We know that it is no longer about one voice, one vision, one curator, one way forward. We know that we’re in this together.

Imagine, instead, that together we create something different:  a series of genuine connections that add up to a kind of daisy chain. A daisy chain of 13 weekly online events – authentic, unexpected author pairings – every Tuesday night between Sept. 8 and Dec. 8, 2020. The result is the most exciting lineup of Canadian fiction writers – past, present, and future – with the author pairings chosen by beloved Wordfest alumni. Find out more about 25@25 here.

Online access to 25@25 is available now. Ticket packages:

  • All-Access Pass, $99 + gst:
    • Access to all 13 online events on the evening they are broadcast, as well as on-demand viewing after the event.
    • A personalized treat from a past Wordfest author
    • 25% discount at Owl’s Nest and Shelf Life if you purchase five of the 2020 books selected by each author, or a book from the authors’ back lists.  
    • NOTE: The All-Access Pass is a Wordfest Platinum Pass benefit. All Platinum Pass holders will be automatically registered in every event and have access to on-demand viewing. 
  • All-Access Pass + 25@25 Limited Edition Book, $125 + gst: 
    • Access to all 13 online events on the evening they are broadcast, as well as on-demand viewing
    • A personalized treat from a past Wordfest author 
    • 25% discount at Owl’s Nest and Shelf Life if you purchase five of the 2020 books selected by each author, or a book from the authors’ back lists.  
    • A limited-edition copy of Wordfests 25@25 book, featuring specially commissioned portrait illustrations for each author and written contributions from each author, celebrating this extraordinary collection of authors for Wordfest’s 25th anniversary. The artists creating the “likenesses” are, like the authors, amongst Canada’s best.
    • Note: The All-Access Pass and Limited Edition Book are a Wordfest Platinum Plus benefit. All Platinum Plus Pass holders will be automatically registered in every event and have access to on-demand viewing.

Single tickets to 25@25 events will be made available online seven days before each event, as the author pairings are announced, for $15 + gst, and include the on-demand viewing option for just that event.

Accessibility: All on-demand events will be close-captioned immediately following the live broadcast. For those who are unable to purchase a pass or single tickets, please contact Everett Wilson at boxoffice@wordfest.com and we will provide complimentary access, thanks to the support of our donors.
