In the interest of public safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Literary Arts Festival, like so many public events in April and May of this year, had to be canceled. However, the LAF will return in 2021 for its 25th Anniversary (part of Grossmont College's 60th Anniversary celebration). Look to this space for the official LAF 25 website, coming in January 2021. Save the address: grossmont.edu/laf.
In the meantime, please consider making a tax deductible contribution to the Creative Writing Fund of The Foundation for Grossmont and Cuyamaca Colleges to help the Creative Writing Program promote literary arts through continued sponsorship of opportunities and events like the Literary Arts Festival. Click HERE or look for "Foundation Giving" in the menu. The funds you raise go directly into the Creative Writing Fund of the Foundation for Grossmont and Cuyamaca Colleges, and every penny goes toward supporting our free-of-charge literary arts events open to our campus and our community, including the annual spring Literary Arts Festival, a week-long celebration of literature featuring nationally and internationally acclaimed poets and writers, writing competitions, panel discussions, readings and literary lectures, and more.
See you in Spring 2021 for our next Literary Arts Festival!
