SYDNEY — Every fall, Cape Breton hosts the Cabot Trail Writers Festival, bringing readers and writers together inside intimate venues on the scenic Cabot Trail.

The festival, now in its 11th year, is set to welcome back literary fans again for a weekend of storytelling and workshops.

Andrea Currie, one of the Cabot Trail Writers Festival’s co-chairs, said Cape Breton is the perfect setting for the connections they want this festival to create.

“It’s a pretty amazing gathering, partly because we live in an amazing place here in Unama’ki,” Currie said. “The authors tend to love it too because I think the setting just gives it a whole different vibe.”

Currie, who lives in Port Hood, is a member of the Métis Nation and is originally from Winnipeg. Her first book, “Finding Otipayimsiwak, The People Who Own Themselves” about the Métis people is set to be released a year from now in September of 2024.
