Participating Writers for Festival 2016

The Hobart Book Village Festival of Women Writers is excited to announce the Participating Writers for our fourth annual Festival of Women Writers on September 9, 10, 11, 2016. For the past three years we’ve welcomed over fifty published women writers to Hobart, New York, the Book Village of the Catskills for a weekend of readings, workshops, book sales, films, play readings and discussions.

For the past two years, we’ve had the best of both worlds. We’ve welcomed new writers and reunited with writers who have been a part of the Festival since our first year.

Please visit their websites to learn more. In upcoming posts we’ll spotlight each writer and her work.

We are thrilled to welcome for the first time in 2016:
