Hobart Festival of Women Writers

The Hobart Festival of Women Writers is an annual festival that fills the nooks and crannies of the Hobart Book Village in Hobart, NY, each year.  The festival celebrates women writers, providing an opportunity for writers all over the country to come together and showcase their work, insights, and skills over the course of three days through readings, workshops, and more. The festival is taking place this year on June 7th, 8th, and 9th, with an all-star line up of fantastic writers. The festival centers the work of women yet invites participants of all genders.
