hat do I wear to the Gala?

Our annual awards celebration will be a black-tie event. We’re requesting tuxedos or dark suits with ties for men, formal or semi-formal wear for women. However, don’t let wardrobe concerns keep you away, especially if you’re packing light or coming from a distance; just wear your best outfit! There will be a delicious meal and A streamlined awards ceremony, so you get home before the sun come up!
Professional Photos of the evening will be taken to capture lasting memories!

Is Seating Assigned at the Gala?

No, there is only reserved seating for the TWG board, MC, Fresh Ink Students table and staff.  You are free to sit with whomever you wish.  There will be tables of 8-10 at the Hall. If you aren’t attending the Gala with anyone, find our room hostess and she’ll help find you seating with a table of friendly people.


This premier national event honours Canadian writers who are Christian, presenting awards for outstanding career achievement, and for the best novels, non-fiction books, French novels, scripts, articles, poems, blogs, and song lyrics published in the previous year.

The evening will include music, and awards presentations. Meet industry professionals, writing colleagues, and fellow members of The Word Guild. Meet and support our best writers.

Everyone is warmly invited to attend—members of the public, friends and relatives of the awards finalists.
