The Story Center at Mid-Continent Public Library is seeking authors in the greater Kansas City area to participate in its sixth-annual Local Author Fair. This year, The Story Center will host a scavenger hunt to encourage readers to meet more authors, and tasty treats will be provided. Authors of all genres are invited to apply to participate in the fair! Participation is free, and authors keep all proceeds from the sale of their books.

6th Annual Local Author Fair
Saturday, November 23, 1:30 – 4:30 p.m.
The Story Center at the Woodneath Library Center

If you are an author within the greater Kansas City area that would like to participate in our upcoming author fair, please submit your application to this online form. You will receive a confirmation email that your submission has been received. All entries will be evaluated by a selection committee, and selected authors will receive notification of acceptance no later than Labor Day.

Local Author Fair Submission Requirements:

  • All authors must submit an online application between August 1 and August 15. Late entries will not be accepted.
