Participation in the festival is done by invitation. If you would like to recommend an author, click on the menu link “For Authors” for procedural details. Please read our festival pecularities on the About the Festival Page. We really do take into consideration those who express interest — and those authors who have come one year, and would like to do so again, but we are in the wonderful, difficult position of having more authors interested in a given year than we are able to accommodate. In response to our evaluations, we’re trying to introduce many new authors each year.
