Festival of Faith & Writing

a three-day celebration of literature and belief

The Festival of Faith & Writing is a biennial celebration that draws more than 2,000 people from across the world to the campus of Calvin University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. 

Rooted in Reformed theology about common grace and the goodness of creation, the Festival of Faith & Writing creates space for meaningful discussion and shared discovery among people with different religious beliefs and practices. Over three days every other April, the Festival brings diverse voices together to offer thoughtful reflection through lectures, readings, conversations, workshops, and more. It’s an absolute feast for readers, including those who also write.

The 2024 Festival of Faith & Writing was held April 11-13 on the campus of Calvin University.
