Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival

Your donations will help us grow our STUDENT OUTREACH PROGRAMS and help us nurture and support the next generation of literary artists in the New Orleans area. The Festival's mission is threefold: to serve the community through educational, theatrical, literary, and musical programs; to nurture, support, and showcase regional, national and international writers, actors, musicians, and other artists; to honor the creative genius of Tennessee Williams, who considered this city his spiritual home.

The Tennessee Williams Festival, a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, brings together theater, literature, music, history, and the culinary arts in an effort to reflect and appreciate the culture of the city of New Orleans. While Tennessee Williams and his catalogue of works continue to serve as a touchstone for Festival programming, the Festival has expanded far beyond solely celebrating this single playwright. Through the incorporation of writing contests, educational outreach, and site-specific programs, the Festival seeks to celebrate both the local literary culture of the South and literary trends on a national and international scale.
