The Voaden Prize

The Voaden Prize: Named in honour of Herman Arthur Voaden, a Canadian playwright who studied at Queen's University and received the Order of Canada. This biennial, nation-wide, open competition is judged blind, meaning the judges select the Winners and Honourable Mentions without knowing the identity of the playwrights. 

Kingston WritersFest:  The festival now welcomes an audience of 6,000 to more than 50 events featuring some 70 authors from around the world, across the country, and down the street.
