If you missed the terrific cover story “Write On Louisville” in LEO by local writer and poet Sean Patrick Hill, check it out here. Hill interviewed writers and publishers in Louisville and reported on the “scene” here, such as it is. What he found — which is what some of us knew — is that there are lots of “pockets” of literary activity: open mics, ‘zines, independent workshops, readings — going on all across the city. We are a city full of diverse writers and literary interests, though across these pockets there is not much in the way of community. On Saturday, October14 InKY will launch a literary festival designed to bring some of these diverse communities together for day celebrating independent publishing and the best in literary Louisville. We’ll have workshops, panel discussions and readers sharing new work with intimate audiences. Based in the NuLu East Market District, the vast majority of the events will be free and open to the public. As we continue our planning, though, we want to hear more from the readers and writers in Louisville: what would make a great day of literature for you?
