About Short Story Fest
Short Story Fest is a literary celebration. It was held for the first time in May 2021, coinciding with National Short Story Month. The purpose of the festival is to bring together readers and writers who enjoy great storytelling, inspiring people of all ages and backgrounds to discover for themselves the transformative wonders of a well-written tale.
The festival features workshops, literary performances, and special events provided in part by the generosity of friends of the festival, the talented literary artists who make themselves available for this event, and the people who stand behind the businesses and organizations that make this event possible for all readers, regardless of their background or challenges.
In 2021, the festival will be held entirely online due to COVID-19. We anticipate that future festivals will include a hybrid of online and in-person events to accommodate the needs of the widest range of readers and writers from all parts of the country.
