Since its inception in 1974, the Toronto International Festival of Authors has welcomed more than 9,000 authors from over 100 countries, including 22 Nobel Laureates and countless other award winners. The 40th Festival will run from October 24 to November 3, 2019 and present the finest Canadian and international novelists, poets, playwrights, short story writers and biographers. The Festival provides writers with an internationally recognised forum in which to present their work.
Our programming team, headed by our Director Geoffrey E. Taylor, reviews materials for Toronto International Festival of Authors programming. This includes the TIFA Presents Series (September to June), the 40th Edition of the Festival, Lit On Tour and various special programming.
*Submissions for the 40th Edition of Toronto International Festival of Authors are now open.
