Since 2008, The Florida Heritage Book Festival and Writers Conference has brought more than 200 nationally known authors and writers to teach, network, and enjoy time in beautiful St. Augustine, Florida. The Festival includes 20+ free presentations by well known authors with book signings and an author’s marketplace.  Thousands of Festival attendees have participated in author presentations, panel discussions, book signings, and a Writers Conference focusing on both the craft and the business of writing.

One of our feature events is the Literary Legends Awards Reception, honoring a Florida author for his or her contribution to literature and culture.

The Florida Heritage Book Festival is a community-based nonprofit organization that depends on your donations and support. Funds raised go to:

We’re proud to support the foundation of our literary culture in Northeast Florida.

The Florida Heritage Book Festival and Writers Conference is a 501(c)(3) corporation, so your donation is tax deductible.
