At this time the author selection process for the 2016 Festival is complete.

If you are interested in submitting a book for consideration for the 2017 Festival, please submit your book and proposal to our offices at: One Diamond Causeway, Suite 21-331, Savannah, GA 31406 after March 1, 2016.

The criterion for 2017 author eligibility is as follows:

  • Preference is given to authors with books published on/after January 1, 2016
  • SBF does not accept self-published authors

Independent Authors and Exhibitors:

We appreciate the overwhelming response from enthusiastic authors and exhibitors alike. As the Festival continues to grow, the logistics of offering independent author tables and an exhibitor’s tent have outstripped available resources. We will not offer either in 2016.

Please contact us at for inquiries other than author or exhibitor applications.


Robin Gold, Executive director
