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. We hope you can join us this Fall to write, to share, to listen, to dream, to discover the vibrant literary scene in the Nutmeg State.

The Post-C-19 world order has yet to be written. We’ll post updates on the status of the Festival this summer. In the meantime . . . we are excited to launch online writing classes and our free webinar series: Lit Talks. Find us on FB and twitter for the latest updates.

Due Fall 2020: The Connecticut Literary Anthology. Prose and poetry from CT writers in a handsome bound edition. Thank you to everyone who submitted.
