Event description


Join us for Cleveland Drafts! This one-day literary crawl across Tremont features local writers working in fiction, poetry, nonfiction and playwriting at every stage of their careers. First 50 attendees to register will receive a free book!

Festival goers will enjoy snacks and beer at Tremont businesses while watching performances by featured writers performing “works-in-progress” to offer audiences a chance to see their creative process at work.

Start with a kickoff event panel at Visible Voice Books, and enjoy performances across Tremont. Stick around for an after party at Lava Lounge where Cleveland’s readers and writers will come together to celebrate the richness of our literary communities!
