As a part of Eastern Washington University's College of Arts, Letters, and Education, Get Lit! Programs coordinates a nationally recognized literary festival each April, as well as educational outreach projects throughout the year. The week long festival offerings include writing workshops, panels and discussions, readings and interviews, poetry slams, and other events celebrating reading and writing for all ages. As many as 10,000 people attend over 50 events during the festival. Our educational programs include writing residencies and author visits for K-12 schools throughout the Inland Northwest. We also host the regional competition for the national Poetry Out Loud recitation contest with participating high schools.
