Artist Inquiries


ith very few exceptions, authors who participate in Wordfest are promoting new works. We ask all authors who would like to be considered for participation in Wordfest to have their publisher or publicist send hard copy review materials as early in the publication process as possible. Wordfest does not review manuscripts in electronic form. Writers publishing work in a digital format (e.g. an e-book) are invited to print and mail a hard-copy version of their manuscript for review. Due to the number of submissions we receive we are unable to return review materials.

If you are an artist, presenter or publisher who is confirmed as a participant in this year’s upcoming Festival, and you wish to connect with us, please send an email to Shelley Youngblut at
