January 29 – 30, 2022
Number of booths is limited. Registration closes January 2, 2022, or sooner if limit is reached.
An exhibit space is one half of an eight-foot-long table (two authors per table). Chairs, tables, and tablecloths are provided. Oversize tablecloths allow authors to hide empty boxes and extra inventory.
The festival may decide to group authors by genre. If you write in multiple genres, list your first choice of genre on the registration form.
If you and another registered author want to be located next to each other, enter each other’s names in the “Partner Request” field on your respective registration forms, and we will attempt to accommodate you.
Your photo and book cover will be used to let visitors know that you are selling books at the festival.
What looks best
The images will display as thumbnails, so a head shot portrait with an uncluttered background will yield the best author photo. For your book, upload only one front cover. No spine, back cover, 3d view, or sets.
Images must be jpg format. Maximum file size is 1 mb each.
✓ Check size of files before registering.
The festival reserves the right to edit author bios and crop or resize image files.
