Wordplay Schedule

Virtual Wordplay Schedule

The Loft's Virtual Wordplay, presented by St. Catherine University and the Star Tribune, is now a wrap. But you can still access an archived recording of each event using the links in the schedule below.

During these difficult times, we’re excited to present all Wordplay events free of charge. We’re grateful to our sponsors for their leadership, but your support is critical too! Help this innovative festival thrive by making a donation in any amount to support the Loft and Wordplay today. Thank you!
