The 2nd Annual Cleveland Drafts Literary Festival is here! This unique literary crawl features local writers working in fiction, poetry, nonfiction and playwriting at every stage of their careers. Join us as we invade the Larchmere neighborhood for an afternoon celebration of words, writers, and community! Festival goers will enjoy performances by featured writers reading “works-in-progress” giving audiences a chance to see their creative process at work. This year’s festival is a mashup of 8 lively events across 6 local venues featuring 30+ amazing writers from across Northeast Ohio. We’ll kickoff the festivities at Logenberry Books and finish with an after-party at Larchmere Tavern. See our website for full schedule and program details. Cleveland Drafts is presented in collaboration with Barnhouse Journal, Belt Publishing, Brews + Prose , Cleveland Institute of Art, Cleveland State Poetry Center, Gordon Square Review, Lake Erie Ink, Literary Cleveland, Loganberry Books, NEOMFA, Manhattan Project Theater Lab, Purpled Palm Press, and Twelve Literary Arts. Our festival is made possible through the generosity of the Ohio Arts Council and our fiscal sponsor Arts Cleveland.
