This one is for the San Francisco Bay Area Authors (or those who can travel to San Francisco in October 2013). From their web site:
This festival was birthed by authors and we love them. However, there are more authors who want to appear at Litquake than we have slots for them; hence, the application process. How are authors selected? It’s a complicated task, carried out by a committee. Our criteria:
- Is the author local or in some way connected to the Bay Area? Or able to travel to San Francisco during the festival in October?
- Does he or she have a book or other significant publications in the last two years ?
- Can he or she give a great live interpretation of the work to a Litquake audience?
We also invite authors when their books fit into genre-specific Litquake events.
