The Literary Arts Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador raises support for programs that involve the community in the literary arts, and fosters awareness, understanding and appreciation for the literature of this province.
Our primary goals are:
We offer an intense writing retreat every autumn: Piper's Frith: Writing at Kilmory (now accepting applications for September 2013). Activities include co-presenting, with the Writers' Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador, the NL Book Awards and the Credit Union Fresh Fish Award, for which we receive generous sponsorship from many supporters.
The Foundation was established in 2005. To build on our achievements, it is 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.
Meet our Board of Directors.
