Travel to East Central University in Ada for the Scissortail Creative Writing Festival, one of state's most exciting annual literary events. For more than a decade, this bookish blowout has brought together award-winning writers, academics and the general public for multiple days of readings that will engage and inspire your creative side. 

This year, a trio of celebrated authors highlight the three-day festival, including Barbara Crooker, Lou Berney and Octavio Quintanilla. Hear all three read exerpts from their inimitable works of poetry and prose, and stick around to hear them discuss the diverse world of creative writing.

The event also features a massive book sale, where you can purchase works by authors presenting at the festival. No matter your taste or background, you're sure to find some excellent additions to your personal library among the eclectic mix of novels, poetry and short story collections, memoirs, anthologies and more. Whether you're already a devotee to all things literary, or you're just looking to expand your horizons, you won't want to miss the Scissortail Creative Writing Festival.
