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

Death Rattle Hum is a migratory reading series designed to engage and involve the literary communities in Idaho’s neighboring states; spreading the word about Death Rattle Writers Festival, and featuring dynamic poetry from both emerging and established artists. This is Death Rattle’s second Broken Mic showcase; featuring touring poets Alex Yann, Griffin Rae Birdsong, Dig Reeder, Ricky Ramirez, and Diana Forgione.
