Literary Festival

A long-standing and beloved tradition, Marin Academy’s LitFest celebrates the oral and written word by hosting writers from all fields. 

Guests and MA faculty and staff present interactive workshops, and students are encouraged to share their own work. Each of the workshops highlights literature beyond what is taught in the classroom. From storytelling, to poetry slams, to investigative journalism, the purpose of this festival is not only to provide entertainment but also to celebrate and emphasize the importance of writing beyond what is required in school.
