Call for Connecticut Literary Events and Activities

Call for Connecticut Literary Events and Activities

The Connecticut Center for the Book E-blast is sent on the first Friday of each month. We’d love to get the word out concerning literary events going on in Connecticut and we are seeking your help to achieve that end.

Categories of things we are interested in:

  1. Individual events such as readings, writing workshops, author talks, literary lectures, etc. These can be submitted via the CT Center for the Book website and will be added to our event calendar. If you do not have an account yet, you can request access here: https://ctcenterforthebook.org/request-access/. If you already have an account, just log-in and add events.

    Note #1: If you are an author requesting addition to the directory, please visit this page for guidelines https://ctcenterforthebook.org/ct-author-directory-submission-criteria/

    Note #2: We prefer to get calendar event submissions through the host organization/venue rather than through individuals. If you are an author working with an organization/venue, please work with the organization/venue to do this on your behalf.

  2. Contests, awards, and publisher and magazine article deadlines that are open to writers of all types. This might also include things such as multi-series classes or conferences that have a sign-up deadline. Again, the specific dates can be added to our calendar when they are available as well. (See above.)
  3. Thematic activities and initiatives: Examples of thematic activities are month-long events such as:

February: Library Lovers’ Month
April: National Poetry Month
November: NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)

All CT Reads is a good example of an initiative.

A 100-word description (which is 700 characters, give or take) would be great and individual activities should go in the calendar as they are scheduled.

You do NOT need to have an account to submit activities in categories 2 and 3. Just complete the form below.

Disclaimer: Submitting does not guarantee inclusion in the E-blast.
