The Winnipeg International Writers Festival is a literary festival based in Winnipeg.

The annual Winnipeg International Writers Festival runs for a week each fall with occasional additional events throughout the year. While the majority of events occur in Winnipeg there are also events at Brandon University and in rural areas of the province.
