Hello Authors and Publishers! We are so excited you are considering showcasing your literary work at MRLF.   If you are not an author or publisher, please visit the vendor page.

We will create discussion panels, conversations and social media commentary for participating authors and publishers at the Missouri River Literary Festival.  Author profiles are created for the website and the books are listed on our Bookshop.org page.   We require author submissions to be an approved author or publisher at MRLF.    When evaluating submissions, we consider not only a book’s literary merit but how and where it might fit within a genre and on our schedule.   Once you receive approval, you will have 72 hours to pay the author’s registration fee.
