The Connecticut Literary Festival is produced by students and staff at Central Connecticut State University. Under the leadership of professor Jotham Burrello, the festival serves readers and writers from Connecticut and beyond producing online Lit Talks!, publishing the CT Literary Anthology, and curating an on-ground festival. Each fall the festival takes over all five galleries at Real Art Ways in Hartford. Each space offers programming and prose including an interactive typewriter gallery. A literary carnival all under one roof.
