JaxbyJax serves as a living link between the contemporary voices of Northeast Florida and their literary forebears—Harriett Beecher Stowe (Uncle Tom’s Cabin) who wintered in Mandarin in the 1860s, James Weldon Johnson (Lift Every Voice and Sing), Zora Neale Hurston ((Their Eyes Were Watching God), Stetson Kennedy (Southern Exposure), and Madeleine L’Engle (A Wrinkle in Time) —who, as the granddaughter of Barnett Bank founder Bain Barnett, lived in Riverside on the shores of the St. Johns River for a few years as a teen.

 

This annual event, now in its 10th year, will be held at the Kent Campus of Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ). Dozens of writers and student writers, selected by an anonymous panel of established writers and writing instructors, will read selections from their recent work. Through the work of our fiscal agent, 904WARD, you, too can be a sponsor of the JaxbyJax Literary Arts Festival.
