St. George Literary Arts Festival

May 18 @ 12:00 pm - May 19 @ 12:00 pm

- Free

The Literary Arts Festival has been given the mandate to promote and elevate literacy and the literary arts in Southern Utah. On Saturday, May 19th the festival will host workshops and other presentations for all ages. Presenters include professionals from a wide cross-section of literary disciplines, including Poetry, Fiction/non-fiction, Contemporary writing, Screen Writing, Lyric Writing, Publishing and Children’s Literature.
Literacy continues to be a critical component of human interaction, even in the electronic communication age. Poor grammar, misuse of vocabulary, and improper use of capitalization can lead to misunderstanding, miscommunication, and unintended offense. Now more than ever we need to know how to write with better accuracy and communicate our intentions with more fluency. Literacy is the beginning of great literature. Whether you are writing for recreation or professionally, accuracy and fluency are critically important. The Literary Arts Festival seeks to raise awareness and proficiency in the way we all communicate. Language is complex, with intricate and subtle nuances that often trip up even the most accomplished writer. Whether you’re writing an email or novel, you want to be understood. For the sake of better communication of ideas and concepts, everyone should attend the festival to improve their communication skills.
Lunch will be available from 12pm until 1pm for a nominal fee. There will also be a number of exhibitors on site, As well as Authors on hand to sell and sign their books. Admission to the festival is FREE to all and is funded by local agencies and organizations with the community’s best interests at heart. We look forward to rubbing shoulders with you at this stimulating and inspiring event.
The Literary Arts Festival promises to approach the topics of literacy and literature in an engaging and entertaining fashion. There will be activities for all ages and all walks of life. Something for everyone has been our goal from day one. We seek to reach out to the entire community and provide an enjoyable atmosphere for enlightenment and illumination. Taking place on the campus of Dixie State University, the festival strives to improve our overall ability to communicate literary intent through workshops and other presentations. We have made every effort to create an all-inclusive atmosphere for expression of thoughts and ideas. You’re sure to come away from the festival with a greater understanding of higher level communication and an elevated ability to communicate your own thoughts.
