Event Submission

Submitted by kennyfraser@gma... on


Please note that your submissions are reviewed by staff before they are posted. Reviewing listings can take 1-2 business days. Please do not submit your event multiple times. Do not use all caps anywhere in your listing, and try to use a descriptive title (ie, Jane Smith Book Launch instead of just Book Launch.) If you have a correction to make, email programs@writers.ns.ca. Please also note that we do not accept listings for events not in Nova Scotia. Thanks!
