The 2017 Death Rattle Writers Festival is a raucous four day celebration of the literary arts taking place in Nampa, Idaho on October 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th. 

Death Rattle Writers Festival is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the Northwest and Treasure Valley together in a joyous celebration of the literary arts in Idaho.

Our goal is to not only cultivate opportunities for aspiring writers, but to create a chance to be inspired by the experience of others. The DRWF celebrates the written and spoken word in their many forms and gives equal opportunity to all members of our society.
