Get Lit Festival
The festival had become a community tradition that thousands of people from Spokane and the surrounding region enjoy every year. More recently, The Spokesman-Review referred to the festival as the literary equivalent to Spokane’s nationally recognized sporting events, Hoopfest and Bloomsday.
Our week-long celebration of reading and writing offers:
-readings, lectures, and on-stage-conversations
-poetry slams and open mics
-visits by festival authors to local K-12 schools and colleges
-Pie & Whiskey!
Our definition of storytelling also allows us to include:
-graphic novels, playwriting, screenwriting, songwriting, blogging, and spoken-word poetry
-events combined with radio, music, film, and theater performances
-community readings and storytelling events by writers of all ages
