What if we got together with our community of creators, artists, writers, community organizers, teachers, students, and parents to organize a literary festival for our community — designed and driven by our own literary community?
The result: over 140 writers arrived in Fresno’s historic Tower District (across all ages and literary genres), including the winner of the prestigious 2016 Walt Whitman Award, Mai Der Vang, and the nation’s first Chicano U.S. Poet Laureate, Juan Felipe Herrera. THOUSANDS of people showed up to discover their literary tribes, and we built a community together. It was amazing.
Best of all: it was 100% FREE!
It's going down again this year, 2017. Join me in celebration of Fresno's literary scene this April 29th!
