Have you written a book, and do you want some feedback? Writer in residence John Smolen, author of 9 novels and 2010 Michigan Author of the Year Award winner (The Michigan Library Association), will read the first twenty-pages of your manuscript and provide his humble opinion.

Poetry slams, signings, short story readings, and talks panels by a selection of women authors, including Ann Arbor’s own Tiya Miles, winner of the MacArthur Fellowship. Experts in all sorts of genres will speak, including comics, suspense, and mysteries, are also highlighted in this festival.
