The Palouse Literary Festival
The University of Idaho used to house the very successful Hemingway Festival annually. Due to the loss of funding, the festival ended. Now, the University of Idaho English Department is re-envisioning it as The Palouse Literary Festival.
Our inaugural event brought in writers from all over the Pacific Northwest, including Leni Zumas, Sam Roxas-Chua, John Sibley Williams, and Debra Gwartney, a University of Idaho alumnus.
As with last year, our festival will consist of a full schedule of events centered around a slate of featured visiting writers and will take place from October 15 -17, 2020. In order to continue this important cultural work, we need your help.
Money gathered through this campaign will directly supply the honorariums to bring in fantastic writers. Any additional money will be used to secure writers for next year's festival. Please consider supporting our campaign by donating and by sharing the link with your friends and family.
Thank you very much. We are grateful for the opportunity to further the literary arts on the Palouse.
