The Tennessee Williams Literary Festival was founded by a group of local citizens who aimed to celebrate the culture of New Orleans. Starting as a two-day festival, they honored the creative Tennessee Williams, who called New Orleans his spiritual home. Today, the festival spans over five days and brings together over 130 authors, actors, and musicians. While teaching over 200 students about professional writing, the festival also supports year-round literary programs throughout the community. The Tennessee Williams Literary Festival has received awards celebrating its excellence, and was also named one of the top ten literary festivals in the nation. Over the years, attendance has increased to 10,000 seats filled and continues to grow as more citizens realize the rich history behind this great festival!

“The Festival’s mission is threefold: to serve the community through educational, theatrical, literary, and musical programs; to nurture, support, and showcase regional, national and international writers, actors, musicians, and other artists; to honor the creative genius of Tennessee Williams, who considered this city his spiritual home.”
