On our literary stage in the Fine Arts Galleria at the San Mateo County Fair, we present a variety of free “events within the event” writing workshops, panels, short plays, presentations, author interviews, readings, book signings, and even songs of the sea.
We offer a number of contests with ribbons and cash prizes, including a $20,000 Creative Writing Scholarship sponsored by Notre Dame de Namur.
We are now publishing our anthology Carry the Light: stories, poems,and essays submitted to the San Mateo County Fair literary contests through Sand Hill Review Press www.sandhillreviewpress.com
The Anthology is available for purchase during the fair and on Amazon.
There is truly something for everyone to enjoy so come join us at the Fine Arts Galleria in Expo Hall.
The majority of these literary events are sponsored by members of the San Francisco/Peninsula Branch of the California Writers Club.
