The Literary Arts Foundation NL

Inspiring excellence in Newfoundland & Labrador writing...

About the Foundation

The Literary Arts Foundation NL raises support for programs that involve the community in the literary arts, and fosters awareness, understanding and appreciation for the literature of this province.

The Literary Arts Foundation's primary goals are:

  • to provide formal training and related professional development opportunities to  enhance the skills and abilities of writers in Newfoundland and Labrador,
  • to celebrate excellence in Newfoundland and Labrador literature,
  • to educate the public about, and enhance its aesthetic appreciation of, this province's unique literary arts, and
  • to promote scholarly achievement in the study of the literature of this province.

We offer an intense writing retreat every second year: Piper's Frith: Writing Retreat for which we are grateful to receive generous support from many corporations and individuals.


The Literary Arts Foundation NL was established in 2005. To build on our achievements, we are working to establish an endowment fund that will help ensure the literary arts continue to thrive in Newfoundland and Labrador for many years to come.
