July 12-24

Register Now

The Inkubator is Literary Cleveland's free annual festival for writers and readers! Each day from July 12-24 will feature a new program or event open to the public and available online, including multi-week workshops, readings, panel discussions, craft talks, open mics, and a keynote address. Altogether, the two-week online conference will become a public celebration of writing in Cleveland that advances writers’ individual abilities, furthers artistic dialogue, fosters a more connected literary community, and invites more people to write.

Conference Proposals

Lit Cleveland is now seeking proposals for workshops, craft talks, and panel discussions for the 2021 Cleveland Inkubator. This year we're aiming to offer more intermediate and advanced sessions that go beyond the basics and take a deeper dive into a specific craft element or topic. We'd also like to offer more panel discussions with exciting writers from all over the country. Deadline: March 15. Learn more and submit your proposal here.

Fellowships

Literary Cleveland is accepting applications for 2021 Inkubator Fellowships, a four-month program that provides two local writers with the opportunity to gain experience in literary programming, event planning, and community outreach. This fellowship opportunity is only for Northeast Ohio writers and is intended for members of historically underrepresented groups in the writing and publishing industry. Our goal is to provide skills training, career advancement opportunities, and support to these writers to help address the longstanding lack of diversity in the writing community. Deadline: March 15. Learn more and apply here.

Stay tuned for more information.

The Literary Cleveland Inkubator Conference is made possible by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts and Culture, as well as through support from Cleveland Public Library.
