Authors / Exhibitors / Vendors


If you are interested in submitting a book for consideration for the 2018 Festival, please submit your book and proposal to our offices at: 37 W. Fairmont Ave., #216, Savannah, GA 31406 after March 1, 2017. Submissions are reviewed by the all-volunteer Author Selection Committee. Invitations to participate are sent out in late June. The schedule of authors is usually in place by early September.

The criterion for 2017 author eligibility is as follows:

  • Preference is given to authors with recently published books. An added preference is given to those penning works of nonfiction.
  • 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 has matured over the past few years, the logistics of offering independent author tables and an exhibitor’s tent during Festival weekend have outstripped available resources and we have offered neither for the past several years. We have directed our focus to the 40+ solo author presentations and the sale of their books.

Please contact us at for more information.


Kim Bockius-Suwyn, Executive Director
