Stay tuned, 2017 Festival updates coming soon!

Submit to Appear at LitFest

LitFest accepts submissions for our festival from publishers and authors. To be considered for an upcoming event, please submit the following materials by May 31 of the intended festival year:

  • An author biography and details of the title to be considered.
  • A galley, ARC, or finished copy of the author’s upcoming or new work.
  • Information about the availability of the author in October.

Generally the submissions that we receive are from publishers, but we will review and consider applications sent directly from writers. LitFest strives to offer a diverse and talented crop of writers at the festival, and we welcome nonfiction authors of all backgrounds, styles, and points of view. If you believe that you would be a good fit, please feel free to submit your application.

Due to the high number of applications that we receive throughout the year, we will only respond to the writers that we have selected for the festival. However, if you have any questions about a pending application, please feel free to inquire via email at [email protected]

All submissions are reviewed by the festival producer, along with consultation with the programming committee. Again, we appreciate your interest. Submissions can be sent via email to [email protected], or by mail:

Suite 200, 10113 104 Street
Edmonton, AB T5J 1A1
Or electronically to: [email protected]
