Introducing a new annual literary symposium

A special thank you to West Elk Community Fund

The 2020 StoryFest is the first incarnation of the North Fork’s new annual literary symposium. We will celebrate the written word with stories and the history of the North Fork Valley, through workshops, speakers, readings, and performances illuminating this haven where we live.

This year’s premier event will lead into the Smithsonian exhibit ‘Crossroads: Changes in Rural America’ coming to Paonia in January 2021, a ‘Museum on Main Street’ exhibition traveling to 30 states. This first year we’ll be focusing on who we are and how we came to this special place, as well as the things we do to survive and flourish.
