This is your opportunity to be part of one of St. Petersburg’s most anticipated events among artists, writers, and performers.

In partnership with Soft Water Studios and Studio@620, Fantastic Ekphrastic has provided the foundation for Keep St. Pete Lit’s many successful programs, including LitSpace writing classes and a bookstore at Morean Art Center, the Book Club at MFA, and the city’s first Writer in Residence at Craftsman House Gallery.

In 2017 these activities continue to expand as KSPLit assumes management of the SunLit Literary Festival (April 10-23, 2017) and expands literary programming throughout the community with readings, performances, school outreach, open mics, literary walking tours and nature hikes. We are proud that our list of community partners has become too long to list.

The third Annual Fantastic Ekphrastic will feature four performances over two nights. On February 24th and 25th, the work of 16 writers, inspired by the work of 16 artists, will be performed by talented actors recruited by the Studio@620. In 2015 and 2016, all shows were sold out.
