Welcome to THIN AIR: the blog!

Plans for the 2011 festival are well underway, and we decided the best way to share our progress was to create a new blog that deals with anything and everything related to THIN AIR. On this blog you will see a variety of posts, ranging from book reviews, featured author biographies, updates on festival progress, creative writing and interviews with readers from around the province. Our goal is to make this new blog as interesting and informative as possible, and we hope you stay tuned and enjoy what we’ve created.

Just in case you’re unsure of what exactly THIN AIR is, here is a quick overview…

In September each year, Winnipeg welcomes writers from Canada and around the world for a week of readings, lectures, interviews, conversations, book launches and other events. That week of literary feasting – which reaches out into the rural areas of the province as well – is THIN AIR, the Winnipeg International Writers Festival. With programming for adults and children, in English and French, THIN AIR is an infusion of energy into the thriving literary culture of this city.

Be sure to check out our website at thinairwinnipeg.ca. You can also follow our festival progress on both Facebook and Twitter, and remember: THIN AIR 2011 is SEPTEMBER 18-24, 2011! 


  1. I think the new blog looks pretty good, but of course I'm biased :) Can't wait to start posting on it regularly!

  2. I may be biased as well, but I think the format is clean and clear, easy to read. I look forward to reading about all the exciting things that will occur during THIN AIR 2011.

  3. Nice blog, and handy for checking the progress of the festival. When will a complete list of writers appearing at Thin Air be released?

  4. We're just finalizing the last few writers and completing their bios, and we will post a list as soon as we're finished.

    There will be a blog post with a list, and you will also be able to visit www.thinairwinnipeg.ca for more information.

    Thanks for your support, Jeff! Keep reading!
