Mattawa River Writers Festival

The Canadian Ecology Centre/Centre Écologique du Canada is home of the Mattawa River Writers Festival/Festival des Écrivains. Come to the woods and dine with esteemed authors Waubgeshig Rice, Helen Humphreys, and Kelly Hill on April 27th. Before and after dinner, they will speak on how their work is inspired by nature.

Everyone is invited to gather at the campfire to continue the conversation under the stars. Sunday morning we’ll have a hearty breakfast and a hike with Bill Steer aka Back Roads Bill. We have 2 concurrent writing workshops on Friday April 26th and a free Saturday morning family program. Come for a day or stay the weekend as we have many packages to choose from to suit your interests and budget.
