The Saugatuck StoryFest—Behind the Scenes of a Literary Collaboration

October 20, 2018

For the National Day on Writing, we celebrate the success of the Saugatuck StoryFest, a 4-day literacy event in southern Connecticut that brought together teachers, writers, students, and members of the community to discuss the power of stories in our lives. Event organizers—including CWP-Fairfield teacher leaders, Westport Public Library, and the Saugatuck StoryFest Youth Board—highlight the history behind the festival, the writers who came, and the wisdom that resulted from the event.
