Welcome to One Page: Canada’s Virtual Literary Series!

One Page is a result of Canada’s largest literary festivals and library systems coming together to collaborate and offer new ways to engage with writers and books at this critical time. As the publishing industry and writers struggle to build awareness and reach readers in an online environment, One Page believes that there is strength in our united efforts.

The One Page Story

One Page got its start in spring 2020 when Toronto Public Library invited Canada’s biggest literary/book festivals to explore the feasibility of offering nationally coordinated and curated content for all Canadians. The founding organizations (in addition to TPL who spearheads the project) include Blue Metropolis Montréal International Literary Festival, Kingston WritersFest, Ottawa Writers Festival, Toronto International Festival of Authors and Vancouver Writers Festival. In August 2020, One Page also invited Thin Air: Winnipeg International Writers Festival and Frye Festival in Moncton to join the One Page curation committee. 

In September 2020, One Page extended the invitation to Canada’s libraries and other literary/book festivals to join as partners. The project took off with nearly every library system in the country and almost all of Canada’s major literary/book festivals taking part.
