Unfortunately, due to the ban on large gatherings in response to COVID-19, the 2020 Literary Arts Festival has been cancelled. We very much hope to reschedule for a future time and will provide updates if and when we do.
In the meantime, the LAF Writing Competition is still on. Submissions are closed, but authors of winning submissions will be notified by the end of March and the results announced on our OpenLab site.
Thank you to all of our volunteers, and the many people who were planning on participating in and were actively working to promote the Literary Arts Festival. We hope to be able to announce a new date for the event in the not so distant future.
