San Diego Writers Festival

Celebrating Our Inaugural Festival

More than 1,200 people experienced the inaugural San Diego Writers Festival on April 13, 2019, at the San Diego Central library in downtown San Diego. The event, a free, performance-based festival celebrated writers of all kinds, including authors of poetry, spoken word, music, screenplays, books, plays, graphic novels, comic books, and more. From the first floor, to the ninth floor, attendees took part in daytime events including interactive craft and business-based workshops, live performances, educational panels, opportunities to meet authors, book signings, readings, live music, teen workshops, and kid-friendly events. Many workshops and panels filled to capacity and we are still getting glowing reviews from speakers, attendees, and volunteers. 

The San Diego Writers Festival is a free, community based event designed to celebrate the power of writing and storytelling. 
Stories transform both the teller and the listener. In whatever form you welcome a story into your life—by reading a book or graphic novel, listening to a podcast or a poetry reading, watching a movie or going to the theater—stories are our pathways, our links, our bridges to one another. 

At the San Diego Writers Festival we ask two important questions: What if there was a place where all stories could be nurtured and heard? What if we opened our community up to stories from under-served, disenfranchised or neglected parts of our community? We invite you to join us on our mission to hear one another, be educated and illuminated by one another, to inspire one another.
