Get Lit Festival
It is our festival's mission to advance the arts, celebrate and amplify diverse voices, and empower creativity.
The Get Lit! Festival began in 1998 as a one-day marathon of literary readings sponsored by Eastern Washington University Press and EWU's Department of Creative Writing. Then The Spokesman-Review lovingly called it "the little literary festival that could," and they were right. By 2004, the audience had swelled to 10,000 people from Spokane and the surrounding region.
