The Sunlit Festival: A Celebration of Literary Arts, March 4-13, 2016
This unique happening sprung into existence in 2015 and has already grown beyond expectations. Kathy is thrilled to be part of the new Dark Arts author track during the festival, and will be featured at two events. To learn more about them, go to the Dark Arts Event Page and the SunLit Literary Pub Crawl Event Page at SunLit’s FaceBook Page.
There are few literary festivals quite like SunLit, spread across days and downtown St. Pete venues, with an array of events for every literary taste and age group.
Check out Lucha Libro: Live Literary Combat, where four pairs of daring Tampa Bay Area writers will have five minutes to create a literary masterpiece from a random prompt and move on to the next round. Only one will emerge alive…literarily speaking.
The Dark Side of literature might not have cookies, but there will be wine. The Dark Arts: Authors of the Horror Writers Association Shine a Light on Dark Fiction and Horror, hosted at Wine Madonna, promises a darkly intriguing conversation with best selling and award winning authors and screen writers of supernatural thrillers, horror and dark fantasy.
Or spread your blanket, uncork that bottle and let the St. Petersburg Shakespeare Festival offering of “Cymbeline” transport you to theater as it was in the 17th century.
Be a literary rebel and join the Citywide Read and Write In. Bring a picnic, your favorite books or tote some notepads to a campy and digital-free space created by Special Guest Camp Unplugged.
Be part of the story of Through Our Eyes, when students from the Pinellas County Schools’ Journeys in Journalism program conduct live interviews of their families, capturing the history of their communities in the process. One generation learns from another.
Could you ask for more? Well, there is more. Lots more, including eight days of family friendly story time activities. Explore them all at SunLit.org
