On November 30, 2016, as part of our 40th anniversary celebrations, the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia (WFNS) announced four new Legacy Memberships.

Nova Scotian winters can be unpredictable and messy. Because of that, the WFNS Office has put a plan in place to ensure the safety of staff. On days when the weather is questionable (sidewalks and roads unplowed, ice, heavy snow, extreme temperatures, etc.) your staff may be working from home. On those days, a notice will be posted on social media and our website. If you have an urgent query on those days, please email contact@writers.ns.ca as we won't be in the office to answer the phone.
