There are many ways that the events of the Wisconsin Book Festival come together. Some come to us through the offical publisher booking process, others come from the authors themselves. Many are the result of community partnerships, and still more are the result of public proposals. This last category has yielded some of the most original and engaging programming over the fifteen years that we've been hosting this incredible event in Madison.
The proposal period for the 15th Anniversary Wisconsin Book Festival is officially open. We will be accepting proposals from April 1st until June 30th. All proposals should be submitted electronically by email to email@example.com.
Full proposals include:
Please submit the event outline and pertinent details in the body of an email. Supporting materials may be submitted as attachements, but links are preferred.
We hosted 10 Wisconsin Book Festival events before April 1st this year. That total will more than double by the end of May. Check back throughout the Spring and Summer for all of the latest updates on the 2017 Wisconsin Book Festival. We look forward to seeing you!
The Wisconsin Book Festival is Wisconsin's premier literary event. Every Fall we draw a local and regional audience of 12,000-15,000 people for four days of author events. Our year-round series of events has drawn more than 20,000 people to an additional 100 events over the past four years. Madison's proximity to Chicago, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, and Iowa City makes it an easy addition to any tour through the Midwest. As the State Capitol and home to the University of Wisconsin, Madison boasts an engaged and active literary community who have shown a dedication to supporting great author programming.
