K-12 Educator Track Proposals
New in 2023: We welcome your presentation on best practices for a dedicated K-12 educators' track with talks and roundtables. What would you like your fellow educators to know? What conversation would you like to foster?
Registration Deadline May 31
We welcome journals, presses, programs and literary businesses to the Fall Literary Festival bookfair, where thousands of dollars' worth of books are sold and writers meet editors and program directors.
To encourage participants to visit you, we give them cards to be stamped at each table; fully stamped cards are entered into a drawing of books donated by presenters and small presses.
