Litquake is a project of the Litquake Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit registered in the state of California.

Litquake sparks critical conversations and inspires writers and readers to celebrate the written word with diverse literary programming, interactive workshops, and a nine-day festival. Whether it’s poets reciting in a cathedral, authors discussing science versus religion in a library, or novelists reading in a beekeeping supply store, the goal remains the same: whet a broad range of literary appetites, present the literary fare in a variety of traditional and unlikely venues, and make it vivid, real, and entertaining.

Now grown to the largest independent literary festival on the West Coast, Litquake continues its mission as a nine-day literary spectacle for book lovers, complete with cutting-edge panel discussions, unique cross-media events, and hundreds of readings.
