Cabot Trail Writers Festival

One of the most famous roads in the world, the Cabot Trail, lends its name and wends its way to one of the hottest writers’ festivals around: The Cabot Trail Writers’ Festival. Hatching plots and trading tales amid the glorious autumn leaves is an experience like no other. The Island’s mild climate, warm communities and welcoming traditional local culture help ensure the Cabot Trail Writers’ Festival is a memorable as well-written pros. Join us for this annual celebration of reading and writing in the heart of Cape Breton Island. It’s a weekend of laughter, comradery, up-close conversations, memories you’ll cherish for years to come. Truly a book lover’s paradise. All in the setting of forests and hills, up mountains and along the Atlantic coast.
