Getting Lost for Words

Newfoundland and Labrador is a place with its own vocabulary, its own dialect, even its own dictionary. It is a place where idiosyncratic stories are told with confidence and conviction. It’s here we’ve created a space for an exchange of words and ideas in a scenic town on the edge of the sea. The bountiful art created in, and about, this wild place was acclaimed across the country throughout the lifetime of Newfoundland-born, award-winning author and journalist Sandra Fraser Gwyn.

In Good Company

The Winterset in Summer Literary Festival has grown in audience and scope through the last two decades and includes not only literature but drama, music, and visual arts. Run by volunteers with contributions from the community, Winterset in Summer is a unique celebration allowing writers and artists to showcase their work, discuss their processes, and reflect on how art relates to the human experience.

To this day, the festival’s style is dictated by Sandra’s conviction: the best way to achieve quality is with good company, good discussion, and a good party.

Heather Barrett and Susan Flanagan relax between events in Eastport.
