Elavate your speculative writing now!


The founders of Readerfest recognize that the playing field is not always level, so we create opportunities for writers and publishing professionals to meet and discuss the work of marginalized writers in a safe space that recognizes and celebrates your own unique voices. Our writers’ workshop, Readerfest/Literary Reparations, is twenty-one hours of intensive engagement over three days with the same pro instructors who teach at Clarion, Clarion West, Viable Paradise, Taos Toolbox, Odyssey, Milford and other prestigious internationally recognized writing workshops and conferences. You will get the opportunity to pitch your work to agents who are specifically looking to work with new and underrepresented clients.
