“Litquake is to the literary world what South by Southwest is to the music industry or Sundance is to independent film: an overwhelming, exciting, boisterous week brimming with too much talent and too little time.”—San Francisco Examiner

Litquake hasn’t become the West Coast’s most daring, innovative, and exciting literary festival on its own. Individuals like you have helped us grow and prosper—and helped keep more than 80% of our events free to the public, from our one-of-a-kind Lit Crawl, to our year-round Epicenter series, and our author events for San Francisco schoolchildren.

Where your money goes

  • More than 80% of Litquake’s programming is FREE
  • 75% of Litquake’s budget goes directly to programming
  • 20% of Litquake’s budget comes from individual supporters like you!
  • 2,000 children each year meet authors face-to-face and receive books purchased by Litquake
  • Our mission: to foster interest in literature, to perpetuate a sense of literary community, and to host a vibrant forum for writing from the Bay Area and beyond.
