"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."
Litquake is Best Year-Round Festival in San Francisco
"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, and an annual digital lit conference.”
