There is a waitlist for 2024 and should anyone cancel, I'll be contacting authors on the list who still wish to participate.

Read It Write It 2023 

Year Two of Read It Write It Book and Writing Festival happened on Saturday, February 25, 2023 and found a home at The Mall at Wellington Green. It's a beautiful space and the staff was fantastic. 

This year's authors and panels were diverse. There was everything from Secrets Every Author Should Know to How to Write Your Memoir and of course a special Flamenco Dance performance by author Sandra Samore.

The guest authors were a list of who's who in the writing world: Lynessa Layne, Steve Altier, Tess Combs, Betty Rafter, Kiera Yore to name a few.
