Generational: How we build, grow, and change

Many thanks to our wonderful authors, our enthusiastic attendees, and our amazing volunteers for a fantastic festival!

Planning for the 2020 festival is underway, and we’ll update the website as details emerge. Can’t wait to have you join us next year!


What is Generational?

In the Washington Island Literary Festival’s seventh season, we’ll explore:

  • The generation of the new from the old

  • The transitions, natural and unnatural, easy and onerous, between generations

  • What it takes to generate: to move, to grow, to evolve, to change

Many thanks to our wonderful 2019 authors!
