An annual celebration of the literary arts in the center of Connecticut, the Connecticut Literary Festival is produced by Central Connecticut State University and hosted by Real Art Ways located in Hartford’s Parkville neighborhood. Join us this Fall to write, to share, to listen, to dream, to discover the vibrant literary scene in the Nutmeg State.

New in 2020: The Connecticut Literary Anthology. A book of CT writers for all readers. Open submissions from January 6 to March 31. Submit your best work for consideration.
