Literary North was started in June 2016 by two bookish friends, Rebecca and Shari, who wanted a place to compile literary happenings and news in Vermont and New Hampshire.

Literary North champions the literary arts in our rectangle of Northern New England. We provide a carefully selected calendar of literary events in Vermont and New Hampshire, and we partner with the local literary community to promote literary-related events. We also host our own events, including the Mud Season Salon and Poetry & Pie.
