Featuring: Jonathan Auxier, Andrew Kaufman, Mark Lavorato, Sean Michaels, and Samantha Warwick.

Inspired by the classic PechaKucha Night format devised in Tokyo more than a decade ago, Wordfest hosts a lively gathering of Festival artists who give short, multimedia presentations that tease out how music weaves its way into the storytelling process and the habits of writers. Hosted by Andrew Wedderburn.

PechaKucha is a unique event format designed to keep an on-stage presentation concise, fast-paced and energized. Participants are passionate about what they talk about, and often the best presentations are the ones that uncover the unexpected. PechaKucha Nights are now happening in over 700 cities around the world. Sponsored by SWERVE.
