Litquake Is Best Year-Round Festival San Francisco

SF Weekly recently declared Litquake the Best Year-Round Festival in San Francisco:

“What started as a reasonable idea 15 years ago (let’s get a bunch of our friends and all read our writing together in the park!) has become one of the nation’s largest literary festivals and a paradigm for literary bar-hopping, as Litquake’s signature Lit Crawl has now spread to Iowa City, Miami, Brooklyn, Manhattan, London, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Austin. In 2011, Litquake expanded beyond its annual mammoth festival in S.F. (which features more than 800 authors in nine days and draws more than 15,000) to year-round programming: holding monthly readings and conversations, publishing its first book, and starting a podcast, an annual writers’ retreat, and an annual digital lit conference.”
