Unique in the St. John's area, the SPARKS Literary Festival features emerging and established Newfoundland writers in a variety of genres, along with featured visiting writers, reading from their work and participating in informal discussions.

The SPARKS Literary Festival was founded in 2009 by poet and professor Mary Dalton, who served as the festival's director for the first 6 years. Now organized by Memorial's Department of English with ongoing support from the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, SPARKS continues to celebrate the literary creations of Newfoundland and Labrador and showcase writers at various stages of their creative lives.
