Prairie Gate Literary Festival
The next Prairie Gate Literary Festival (PGLF) will be held October 2021. Watch this space for exciting developments.
The mission of PGLF is to provide the University of Minnesota, Morris and Lake Region of Minnesota unique opportunities to learn from and interact with published writers and other professionals in the field of literary arts through such activities as readings, workshops, and panel discussions. Invited authors are chosen partly for the diversity of their backgrounds and styles, and are meant to appeal to a wide variety of audience members.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Lake Region Arts Council and through a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage fund. In addition, the PGLF is sponsored by Briggs Library, Briggs Library Associates, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, the UMN Morris Medieval Studies discipline and the Friends of the Morris Public Library.
