Unearthing and Growing Delaware Youth Literacy:

Tapping into the roots of literacy, branching out with local authors and being motivated by artists of all calibers surrounding Delaware has NEVER been easier. Combining inspiring keynote speakers with creative sessions, Festival of Words this year investigates and promotes local literary talent found in and around Delaware. Growing, networking, and developing a community of readers, writers, artists, and dreamers, Festival of Words 2023 invites Delaware’s middle and high school students to explore our local literary world.

This year’s Festival of Words will take place on Saturday, December 2nd at St. George’s Technical High School. Keep an eye out for more information coming soon!
