Through a range of programs and services, the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia (WFNS) fosters creative writing and the profession of writing in Nova Scotia; provides advice and assistance to writers at all stages of their careers; encourages greater public recognition of Nova Scotia writers and their achievements; and enhances the literary arts in our regional and national culture. Membership is $65 annually ($30 for full-time students/the underwaged.) 

WFNS has pursued this mission for more than 40 years through the shared commitment and passion of its Board of Directors, its staff, and its members. Truly, WFNS could not exist without its members: not only do membership dues and donations contribute to essential funding, but volunteerism and the mandate of the organization are member-driven. Please renew your membership for 2019 and consider adding a charitable donation so that WFNS can continue to build community among writers in Nova Scotia and to invest in the contributions of Nova Scotia writers regionally, nationally, and internationally. 

Renewed WFNS membership will be in effect from January 1 to December 31, 2019. Please complete the 2019 Membership Renewal Form, provided below.
