Longview Literary Festival

About the Festival

The 2016 MCC-Longview Literary Festival will be held on Friday, October 21st at the Cultural Arts Center on the beautiful MCC-Longview campus.  

The keynote speaker will be Latino Writers Collective, who will help us celebrate the cultural diversity of the arts in this eighth annual event. The festival also features readings, panel discussions and writing workshops, as well book sales and autographs.

We have lined up a wonderful guest list including authors Lindsey Martin-Bowen, Carl Rhoden, M.C. Chambers, Marti Verlander and many others.   A number of small press publishers and writers as well as critique groups including the fabulous Summit Scribes will join us.   Our guest list is constantly growing.

The festival runs from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and is free-of-charge for all attendees.
