Big Changes to the Regional Writers Event on the Way!

The 2024 Literary Festival is Fully Booked

Apply for the 2024 North Georgia Regional Book Fair (Sept. 14)


The Dahlonega Literary Festival has two levels of authors: Featured Authors and Regional Writers. Featured Authors are best-selling New York Times authors, as well as first-time award-winning authors.  These nationally known authors are writers of fiction and non-fiction books representing a variety of genres and are invited to attend our Festival. 


Regional Writers are authors who have published with traditional publishers or self-published. They may have written several books or perhaps just one. Usually, they are from the Southeastern United States, but we accept applications from authors who live anywhere.

Exciting news for Regional Writers! Mark your calendars for September 14, 2024!

The March 2 Literary Festival is fully booked, but there is a new venue for Regional Writers: The North Georgia Regional Book Fair (Sept. 14, 2024)!
