The Death Rattle Writers Festival is a raucous three day celebration of the literary arts taking place in Nampa, Idaho the first weekend of October.
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.
By creating an inspiring and atmospheric outlet for local artists and marginalized communities, we will foster an accessible, diverse, and experimental literary community, benefiting participants and spectators alike.
Be sure to meet
