Authors, Poets Featured at Annual Event

Each year, the South Dakota Festival of Books features more than 50 presenters who speak about their work during solo presentations and panels. The lineup includes writers from various genres, including fiction, non-fiction, history/tribal, poetry, children’s/YA, and writers’ support.
 
Festival presenters are selected via a competitive process for a limited number of slots, with decisions made between January and May. If you are an author who is interested in being considered to present at the 2021 Festival, Oct. 1-3, Deadwood, please complete this form and submit it – along with any supporting materials – by mail, email or fax.
