The Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia (WFNS) is a registered not-for-profit organization, with official charitable status, that exists only through the support provided by government partners, member dues, and generous donations.

WFNS is an arts service organization founded on a collaborative philosophy: writers helping writers. This philosophy informs a complete cycle of development programming (such as creative writing workshops and professional development sessions) and a wide array of professional services that support the craft of writing, the business of being a writer, and the promotion of Nova Scotia writers as integral to the province’s cultural life and creative economy. WFNS has appoximately 600 members, at all career stages, for whom we coordinate special projects & events and administer invaluable ongoing programs & awards.

Our current areas of fundraising focus are operating costs for the Alistair MacLeod Mentorship Program and the Writers in the Schools (WITS) program, the endowment for the Ann Connor Brimer Award for Atlantic Canadian Children's Literature, a bursary program for our 2020 Art of Writing youth summer camps.

You can donate to these and other programs by credit card or PayPal online (using the button below), by credit card over the phone (902 423-8116), and by cheque in person or by mail (Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia, 1113 Marginal Road, Halifax, NS  B3H 4P7).

Donors receive our gratitude and a charitable tax receipt for the value of their gift.
