About this Event

The 2nd Annual Cleveland Drafts Literary Festival is here! This unique literary crawl features local writers working in fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and playwriting at every stage of their careers. Festival- goers will enjoy performances by featured writers reading “works-in-progress” giving audiences a chance to see their creative process at work. We’ll kick off the festivities at Loganberry Books, featuring a community panel discussion on “How can a community support its writers at every stage of their careers?” This year’s festival is a mashup of 7 lively events hosted by 8 incredible literary organizations across 6 local venues featuring 30 amazing writers from across Northeast Ohio. Stick around for an after-party at Larchmere Tavern!
