LitCleveland Inkubator Conference

Literary Cleveland’s Inkubator Writing Conference is the largest free writing conference in the country, providing workshops, craft talks, panel discussions, readings, and more to empower writers, celebrate literary excellence, and amplify diverse voices.

Past speakers include Hanif Abdurraqib, Jericho Brown, Wesley Lowery, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Claudia Rankine, Connie Schultz and more.

‍After two years of virtual festivals, the 2022 Inkubator Writing Conference will return to the downtown Cleveland Public Library in-person on September 9-10 as part of Cleveland Book Week with the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards and the Great Lakes African American Writers Conference. Leading up to the conference, Literary Cleveland will host online events to extend the conversation beyond Cleveland’s borders.
