About SLF

The Southern Literary Festival is an organization of southern colleges and schools founded in 1937 to promote southern literature.

Each year a different school hosts the festival, an undergraduate writing conference that offers participants workshops, readings, and master classes in a wide variety of genres, including fiction, poetry, playwriting, and non-fiction.
