Rancho Mirage Writers Festival


The Rancho Mirage Writers Festival is a world class gathering of writers, thinkers, and people contributing to the intellectual vitality of our time. The City of Rancho Mirage, California, will welcome authors and readers to the Sixth Annual Rancho Mirage Writers Festival from January 30-February 1, 2019. Writers will talk about their books, their source of ideas, and the mechanics of writing for publication. The Festival was founded in 2014 by Jamie Kabler, who wanted to bring a premier intellectual event to the Coachella Valley. As Festival enthusiast Mark Hogan describes it, the Festival is “Coachella for the brain.” The Festival began as a small gathering with 400 readers and 6 founding angels to a sold-out event that attracts over 1,000 readers and allows only 150 angels. The Festival has featured authors who are the recipients of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, among other honors. Many featured books are New York Times bestsellers. The Festival has become truly international with authors from all over the world. During the day the Festival is held at the award-winning Rancho Mirage Public Library. Each evening, talks and panels will be presented at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort, the official hotel of the Festival.
