The CityLit Stage features writers and musicians from around the region all weekend long.

CityLit Stage

As an extension of CityLit Project, a literary arts organization serving Baltimore since 2004, CityLit Stage at the Baltimore Book Festival is a showcase of regional literary talent that includes presenting individual authors writing across all genres to highlighting the area’s diverse literary journals, reading series, and writing programs. The stage's popular Free Friday Feedback gives writers a chance to meet with local authors and editors for constructive criticism of their creative writing. This year, husband and wife authors, as well as New York Times Bestsellers Charles Bock (Oliver & Alice) and Leslie Jamison (The Empathy Exams), will headline.
