gritLIT Festival  Thumbnail

Hamilton writer and writing teacher Krista Foss started the gritLIT Festival in November, 2004. Since its inception the festival has grown considerably. At first, readings started out small and intimate at the Staircase Theatre. When the festival started to gain momentum, expanding its reach, it needed to branch out to a number of venues such as the Art Gallery of Hamilton, the Workers’ Arts and Heritage Centre, the Sky Dragon Centre and the Hamilton Conservatory for the Arts.

Writes such as Andrew Pyper, Maggie Helwig, Trevor Cole, Kathleen Winter, Jean Rae Baxter and many more have entertained audiences at the festival, reading from new work and hosting workshops.

GritLIT is also associated with Hamilton’s monthly reading series, LiT LiVe, and has joined forces with Arts Hamilton and the Hamilton Poetry Centre.
