The Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary festival brings more than 130 authors, actors, and musicians to the French Quarter for our five-day event. We provide professional writing education to more than 200 area students and support year-round literary programs in the community. Our festival nurtures up-and-coming literary and theatrical talent through our contests and readings, which bring in more than 1,700 poems, short stories, and one-act plays. TW/NOLF, named one of the "Six Literary Festivals Around the World You Can't Miss" by Afar Magazine, creates a total economic impact of 1 million dollars during the five-day event. Our partner festival, the Saints and Sinners Literary Festival was founded in 2003 and has grown into an internationally-recognized event that brings together a who's who of LGBT publishers, writers and readers from throughout the United States and beyond.
The Festival's mission is threefold: to serve the community through educational, theatrical, literary, and musical programs; to nurture, support, and showcase regional, national and international writers, actors, musicians, and other artists; to honor the creative genius of Tennessee Williams, who considered this city his spiritual home.
