ARTS & CULTURE IN NEW LONDON
celebrating book arts, poetry & storytelling
Word. is a 3-day festival in Downtown New London’s Arts District launching in May 2020. The festival aims to create a sense of community among artists, poets, performers, writers, and others interested in zines, independent publishing, and artists’ books. Word. will activate various art-focused spaces in Downtown New London’s Arts District and introduce the community to ideas around self-publishing, book arts, and bookbinding. In addition to a book fair (featuring local and independent artists), there will be dynamic spoken word and musical performances, workshops, and an intimate panel discussion on Storytelling with local and visiting guest speakers.
