NOVEMBER 5-6, 2021
The 14th annual festival, held virtually this year, is a FREE festival featuring award-winning writers. These writers provide community readings and writing workshops. During the Festival a Community Stage is open to all writers and performers, local students perform dramatic readings of works by the visiting writers at the "Drive By Poetry" event and a Creative Writing Contest is held for area youth.
Share your creativity
Words for You is a project of commissioned poems, stories and songs. Each festival supporter has the opportunity to commission an original work by a favorite author! The completed piece will be given to the patron, and all the works will be read aloud at a virtual performance.

All donations help support the Festival of Words Mission to inspire literacy and creativity for an underserved community through workshops and performances.
