GonzoFest 2018 Literary Journalism Contest

GonzoFest Louisville

Together with the Louisville Public Library and BiblioBoard, We’re celebrating the national expansion of the GonzoFest Literary Contest — and invite all public libraries, their independent authors, and writer communities to enter a single piece of literary nonfiction journalism in the tradition of the late Hunter S. Thompson.

The “Call for Entries” is now open

$1,000 Prize  will be granted to the Literary Winner

Submit Your Work

Literary entries are due by 11:59 p.m. EST on March 28, 2018

Entries must be submitted via the literary contest portal located on BiblioBoard’s website.

There is no type of story preferred over another so long as it’s true, and interesting. The emphasis will be on the quality of the writing, and the significance of the story it tells.

For more information about the literary contest, please visit the 2018 literary contest page, or contact the GonzoFest Literary Contest Coordinator, Michael Lindenberger of The Dallas Morning News at mlindenberger@dallasnews.com.

GonzoFest Louisville celebrates the life and work of Hunter S. Thompson in his hometown of Louisville, KY. 2018 will mark the eighth year of GonzoFest Louisville.
