Let’s write! 

The Emerging Writers Festival
August 16th - 18th, 2019

The Emerging Writers Festival aims to celebrate, educate, and inspire emerging writers over three days of free and low-cost literary arts programming. Not a writer? Never fear! The weekend also features events for readers and book lovers, like free public author talks and a book fair. Just choose your ticket type then mix and match panels, classes, and readings for your best bookish weekend. 

The goal of the festival is to connect readers to new writers, and emerging writers to new opportunities, skills, and to each other. Join us to kickstart your writing practice, learn about pitching editors and agents, take a craft class, or meet your next favorite author!


Help us make it happen.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered or applied to a vendor at the book fair! Applications are now closed, we’ll be in touch with more info soon!
