On Saturday, June 15, 2019
at the home of internationally acclaimed author
Victor Villaseñor

Announcing the
Sixth Annual Writers and Creatives Festival

Celebrating the author and artist within us all
THIS IS NOT AN SDBA EVENT

The artistic and literary community within a hundred-mile radius of Oceanside repeats this inspirational event, hosted by CEO of A Word With You Press, Thornton Sully. Bring family and friends to this FREE EVENT at the hacienda of world-acclaimed author Victor Villaseñor, 1302 Stewart Street in Oceanside, on Saturday, June 15th, from 4:00 till 9:00 pm.

All attendees to this pot-luck may choose to have stage time for sharing their accomplishments since the last gathering and inform the audience of upcoming performances, book signings, readings, and gallery openings. Please, come PROMOTE YOUR CREATIVE projects! Networking is not only permitted, it’s part of the attendee job description!

There will be live entertainment and an open mic, beginning at 4:00 at this free, family-friendly event.

If you have ever thought of writing a novel or discovering artistic talents within you, you will leave this event inspired and motivated.

San Diego Book Awards will be sponsoring two tables at the San Diego Writers Festival. Also, don’t forget to check out KidsWrite! San Diego, sponsored in part by the San Diego Book Awards. We are proud to support San Diego writers at ANY age! Not only that, we’ll be walking around meeting the writers, and our president, Tiffany Vakilian, will be in a panel! Her panel takes place right after Piper Kerman’s interview. Kerman is this year’s keynote speaker, and author of Orange is the New Black.
