Catch a glimpse of our 2013 Festival, just in case you missed us in March (or if you want to relive the weekend hoopla).

Our highlight reel features literary giants, fantastical costumes, soulful music, educational outreach, and lots of shouting from our wanna-be Stanleys and Stellas. See author and judge of our Fiction Contest Michael Cunningham, Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair contributor Douglas Brinkley; and Oscar-winning playwright John Patrick Shanley, plus Tony-nominated Broadway bombshell Alison Fraser and Mad Men star Bryan Batt; and poet, dramatist, and critic Niyi Osundare.

Many thanks everyone who participated speakers, performers, students from our WriteNOW education outreach program, volunteers, and Festival friends, old and new.

Special kudos to our friends at NOLAFugees for capturing our Festival adventures and creating this beautiful video!
