Writefest is a week-long writers festival hosted by Writespace, Houston's grassroots nonprofit literary arts center. The festival kicks off with a series of Monday-Thursday workshops and culminates in a weekend filled with panels and presentations by local and national writers and literary journal editors of all genres, a literary journal fair, and readings by local and nationally-recognized authors. This is the second year of the event, which is funded in part by the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance.
Award-winning authors Ken Liu and Kelly Luce will be presenting keynote addresses during the festival’s weekend activities. In collaboration with Brazos Bookstore, the keynotes will also read from selected works on Friday.
