This page contains the festival application form. Helpful instructions are provided in sidebars next to the form.
Before you register, take a moment to read the Terms of Participation below. By registering you agree to abide by them.
Number of booths is limited. Registration closes December 15, 2020 or sooner if limit is reached.
The registration fee for the 2021 festival has been waived.
Do not use this form to upload videos. Instructions will be sent upon receipt of your application.
Enter names in both sets of name fields. If you don’t use a pen name, enter your name twice.
Upload Word doc & photo
Clicking an “Upload” button opens a file explorer window. Navigate to the location where you saved the Word document, click on it and then click the button labeled “Open.” Do the same to upload the author photo.
Type the title of a book, omitting subtitles. Click the Genre field and select a genre from the dropdown list. If your exact genre isn’t listed, choose the closest match.
The genre of the book in the first title slot determines the genre location of your booth.
If you have more than 1 published book, you can up to 9 titles. After you enter the title and genre for Book 1, click the button “+Add Book” and another pair of Book fields will be added.
Note: book covers in your booth will display in the order that titles are entered on the application (1-9.) Each title can be a different genre.
If you write several genres, don't worry. A separate page of the Festival site will organize book covers by genre, by author.
However, the booth containing the author’s video is assigned based on the genre of the book title in slot #1.
Note: A genre with too few books may be grouped with similar genres at our discretion.
