17th Annual CityLit Festival - March 21, 2020


UPDATE! The 2020 CityLit Festival Has Been Postponed Due to the Coronavirus Outbreak. More Details to Come When Available.

The 17th Annual CityLit Festival, Baltimore’s award-winning, day-long festival of literature takes place on Saturday, March 21, 2020. This year we return to our original location, the central Enoch Pratt Free Library, our longtime partner.

The event is designed to inspire and motivate the writer in you, to feature premier authors you may or may not know, and to create an ongoing enthusiasm for literature.

Speaker highlights include National Book Award winner Nikky Finney, Susan Straight, Marwa Helal, Casey Cep, Jennifer Baker, Madhuri Pavamani, and Kay Redfield Jamison, and Cynthia Manick

Most sessions are free, but these special sessions require advance registration (follow the links below to learn more):

Also, our Literary Marketplace returns! (And FREE registration is still available for vendors. If you have a publication or literary-related service, click here to access our registration form.)
