Submit to Appear at LitFest

LitFest accepts submissions 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, submissions 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  submit your application, along with any relevant links or information that lets us know what sort of presentation you have in mind.

Due to the high number of applications that we receive throughout the year, we will only respond to the writers selected to appear at 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 and programming committee. Again, we appreciate your interest in LitFest.

Submissions can be sent via email to [email protected], or by mail:
