Obviously, we love to write around here, so we’re excited when a group of writers come together to share ideas and stories! Such a time is coming up here in Decorah at the Luther College Writers Festival.
The Luther College Writers Festival will feature some of our most celebrated literary greats – Erik Larson, Jane Hamilton, Bret Anthony Johnston, Charles Baxter, and others – alongside up and coming writers such Anais Duplan and Gretchen Marquette.
“I’m excited for the sheer number of writers gathering in one place to celebrate writing and literature,” says Festival organizer and local writer Keith Lesmeister. “Where else in the world can you talk about those things you love – writing and literature – with like-minded people who love words and sentences and as much you do?”
The Luther College Writers Festival will be held (where else?) on the Luther College campus September 23-24, 2016. The general public can register for the festival for $50 (discounts for Luther faculty and staff, and all students)! The festival schedule includes readings, craft lectures, two keynote addresses, a book fair, and more. Register today!
