Description: "The Newburyport Literary Festival is a celebration of literature, authors, and readers. With its rich literary heritage, the greater Newburyport area has a lot to be excited about. Writers as diverse as John Greenleaf Whittier, John P. Marquand, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Andre Dubus II have called Newburyport home.

Nowadays, dozens of novelists, poets, and writers of nonfiction live in and around Newburyport. Some of today's talented authors include: Andre Dubus III, author of The House of Sand and Fog; Keith Ablow, Inside the Mind of Scott Peterson; Frieda Arkin, author of Hedwig and Berti; Elisabeth Brink, author of Save Your Own; and Mark Karlins, Music over Manhattan.

And, that's only the beginning. NLF is pleased to welcome these local writers:
Michael Cantor, Erica Funkhouser, Áine Greaney, Dyke Hendrickson, Cheryl Richardson, William Sargent, Frank Schaeffer, Anne Easter Smith, children's author and illustrator, Ed Emberley and Rhina Espaillat, poet and founder of the Powow River Poets." (newburyportliteraryfestival.org)
