Unbound (2021 – 2022) was an audiobook series featuring fiction, nonfiction, and poetry by Nova Scotian authors. A co-production of the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia (WFNS) and Neptune Theatre, the series breathed new life into the works of foundational and exceptional authors, giving Nova Scotians (and the world) an opportunity to experience and explore these works in a new format. Each Unbound audiobook was performed by a local actor or writer and recorded at Neptune Theatre in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Recommended Experience Levels

The Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia (WFNS) recommends that each workshop’s participants share a level or range of writing / publication experience. This is to ensure that each participant gets value from the workshop⁠ and is presented with information, strategies, and skills that suit their current writing priorities.

To this end, the “Recommended experience level” section of each workshop description refers to the following definitions developed by WFNS:

  • New writers: those with no professional publications (yet!) or a few short professional publications (i.e., poems, stories, or essays in literary magazines, journals, anthologies, or chapbooks).
  • Emerging writers: those with numerous professional publications and/or one book-length publication.
  • Established writers/authors: those with two book-length publications or the equivalent in book-length and short publications.
  • Professional authors: those with more than two book-length publications.

For “intensive” and “masterclass” creative writing workshops, which provide more opportunities for participant-to-participant feedback, the recommended experience level should be followed.

For all other workshops, the recommended experience level is just that—a recommendation—and we encourage potential participants to follow their own judgment when registering.

If you’re uncertain of your experience level with regard to any particular workshop, please feel free to contact us at
