Mission & Mandate


Our mission is to nurture emerging writers and to celebrate short stories in the landscape that inspired Alice Munro.


The Alice Munro Festival of the Short Story (AMFSS) stages an annual literary festival that honours Alice Munro and nurtures emerging writers through workshops and onstage presentations that celebrate the short story.

AMFSS contributes to the cultural and economic communities of Wingham, North Huron, and Huron County and help assure their place in the Canadian landscape.
