Join us for our annual literary festival in Bend. This year we celebrate nationally-recognized storytellers and Oregon-based artists who work at the intersection of art-making and risk-taking.

Our festival is designed for readers, writers and folks who love the literary arts to come together and learn about what’s really exciting in the world of contemporary literature. The festival includes a keynote lecture, readings, panels, writing workshops, art installations and more. And, this is Bend — so don’t miss our inaugural Beer & Books event.

You’ll leave with inspiration and tools for your own creative endeavors, whether those involve reading, writing, teaching, imagining, or other forms of making. Registration for this event is required so book your place soon!
