Join us for literary wonder beneath the big sky!


The Montana Book Festival is now accepting submissions for the 2017 Festival, September 27 - October 1 in Missoula. 

Since 2011, 100,000 Poets for Change has been working with poets to help organize events around the world to promote peace, justice and sustainability. http://100tpc.org
The Montana Book Festival is excited to participate in the September 30th Global Event Day by hosting a poetry reading with the theme of change. If you would like to read a poem about change, please submit your work (up to three poems) by Friday, September 1. The selection committee (made up of students and alumni of the University of Montana‚Äôs Creative Writing Program) will choose a diverse line-up by Friday, September 8. If you are traveling from out of town to read at the Global Event Day, let us know if you would like us to ask a local poet to put you up overnight.
$100.00

Exhibitors are invited to participate in the 2017 Montana Book Festival Bookfair, September 30, in downtown Missoula, Montana.

In contrast to previous years, MBF will not be using the Holiday Inn Downtown, but rather the event will be held at The Public House, centrally located in downtown Missoula.  http://www.missoulapublichouse.com  

Exhibitors will be provided a 6' exhibit table with white linen and 2 chairs, as well as internet access. Final book fair location will be determined by early April and all paid exhibitors will be notified. 

Exhibit space is limited, so early reservations are recommended. Priority will be given to previous exhibitors and those whose tables represent more than one author. This application form will remain open until our exhibitor space has filled.


The 2017 Montana Book Festival is seeking volunteers for a variety of assignments before, during and after the festival. 

All volunteers will receive a festival button, t-shirt, tote bag and invite to a fun festival afterparty. 

Thanks for your interest!
