Lit Fest is our annual summer celebration of the literary arts. Join us for two weeks of workshops, parties, seminars, salons, agent consultations, and more. We have something for everyone, including seminars in fiction, nonfiction, memoir, poetry, and screenwriting, as well as courses for young writers, grades 3-12. Choose classes and events à la carte, or sign up for one of our festival passes for the full experience.
