Meet Your Literary Community

Meet Your Community 2020 is coming soon

There's more growing in the Valley than fruits and vegetables. Founded in partnership with the Open Air Market at the Phoenix Public Market in 2018, Meet Your Literary Community is an annual celebration of local literature showcasing over 50 local authors, publishers, and other literary organizations from all across the Valley. 

Beyond meeting local authors and learning more about all of the opportunities for creative writing and contemporary literature across the Phoenix Metro, community members can enjoy miniature talks, pop-up readings, flash workshops, and more. 

Next year's event will be announced soon.

In the meantime, you can meet past exhibitors or view past activities

You can also learn about the Desert Nights, Rising Stars Literary Fair or find other upcoming events.
