About Loft Events
The Loft offers a diverse array of literary events, reading series, book launches, and more. Please see our calendar listings—we encourage everyone to participate. Expand your literary network, get inspired, be entertained, or just support your local and global literary community.
Each year, the Loft presents two major annual events—Wordplay and Wordsmith. Wordplay is a festival for readers of all kinds to come together, connect, and celebrate the year in books. Wordsmith is a career, connection, and craft conference for writers at all levels.
Through the theme of Choice and Chance, the Loft will explore how much control we really have in our stories and lives and what do we leave to chance?
The Loft's signature, recurring events include the Mentor Series, Equilibrium, and Big Ideas. Learn more below.
