Local Author Expo Application

Enter by October 31, 2020 for a chance to become one of our featured self-published or professionally published local authors.


Important to Note:

Selected authors will not be offered compensation or a speaker’s fee. Selected authors will need to submit a short sample (if different from the application sample) to be featured on the Library’s virtual exhibit page. Selected authors must secure copyright permissions for displayed excerpts. Authors who participated in last year’s Local Author Expo may apply for 2021.
