Our March 17 event features C.C. Humphreys and Tilar Mazzeo.
The next Sidney and Peninsula Literary Festival will take place September 22 to 24, 2017, but join us for our Spring Reading Series celebrating the work of local authors. See Upcoming Events. We are also excited to announce our "Becoming a Professional Author" series of talks by Bennett Coles about the publishing world taking place on March 11, April 8 and May 6. These talks will be of particular interest to writers and aspiring writers who wish to have their work published. Discover the world of publishing, what publishers may be thinking when they receive your work and why you may need their help. See Publisher Talks.

Our previous festivals were supported by granting agencies, local businesses, other arts organizations and individual donors. We couldn't hold this Festival without this support and our dedicated team of volunteers. A special thanks to Tanner’s Books, for their continued support and generous sponsorship.
