Author Submissions

Submissions for our 2019 Festival are now closed.

Please note for future consideration:

MFOB features a diverse group of authors in conversations, panels, and presentations. The majority of presenting authors appearing at the festival is by invitation only. When evaluating submissions, we consider not only a book’s literary merit but also where it might fit in with other works in the festival lineup.

To be considered, the book must be published in the eighteen months preceding the festival.

Priority consideration will be given to a book published within the festival year.

Please check back here in early 2020 to learn more about applying for next year’s Festival.

Thank you for your interest in MFOB!
