Succeed2gether’s six annual Montclair Literary Festivals are looking for submissions
Succeed2gether’s sixth annual Montclair Literary Festival, taking place Thursday, May 5 through Sunday, May 8 with festival day on Saturday, May 7, is seeking submissions from the community.
Writers, publishers, publishers, community groups, and anyone with a passion for books can submit an event proposal. The event can be a panel discussion, a solo book discussion, a reading, a masterclass, or something completely new and original. Proposals can be aimed at an adult, child or young adult audience.
“We plan to be in person outside in tents for the day of the festival,” said Marcia Marley, president of Succeed2gether’s Montclair Literary Festival. “Other events and classes can be held indoors or online via Zoom or Crowdcast as needed.”
Over the past few years, Succeed2gether’s Montclair Literary Festiva submissions have included: “In the Zone,” a discussion of why we’re fascinated by that magical feeling of beating the odds in sports; “Going Rogue: Alternative Ways to Get Into Print,” a panel on writing and publishing journeys, featuring National Book Award finalist Min Jin Lee alongside up-and-coming writers; and “Immigrant Voices,” in which a diverse group of writers discussed the importance of sharing their immigrant perspectives.
Submissions will be accepted by email at [email protected] until midnight February 28. Decisions will be made by March 14.
