Fall Literary Festival Gathering In Reader

Readings & Discussions

Concept Studio with Lit Youngstown Sign

Lit Youngstown hosts readings in venues throughout the city, as well as the monthly First Wednesday Readers Series (started in 2015). Readings give us a chance to showcase a variety of contemporary work by published local and regional writers. In addition, the open mic after the reading provides a space for local writers to read their work aloud and be heard.


In 2020 we hosted the New Book News series, featuring books released during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The readings were livestreamed and are archived on our YouTube channel. 


The monthly Food for Thought book discussion is enjoyed by reading enthusiasts and feature a variety of styles of contemporary work. 

The Fantasy Book Club met online in 2021-2022.
