Deep Carnivale Will Take Place September 12 and 13Deep Carnivale: A Celebration of Words, Tampa’s premier literature festival, takes place Saturday, September 12-13, 2009, from 10 AM to 5 PM. Dozens of authors, poets, songwriters and artists will present work on multiple stages in the Performing Arts Building of Hillsborough Community College, Ybor City Campus. The event is free and open to the public. The venue is located at the corner of 14th Street and Palm Avenue.

Organized by The Artists and Writers Group, Inc., in partnership with Hillsborough Community College-Ybor City Campus, this is the third year of a celebration of writing and reading that brings artists representing a diverse range of writing styles, ages, experience, and cultural backgrounds together to share their love of literature and related art forms with the Tampa Bay community.

With something interesting for all ages, Deep Carnivale presents art and activities from the playful to the avant garde. For the children, there will also be a wide array of supervised literacy, reading and arts activities to enjoy in the large rehearsal hall right in the middle of the festival. Children’s Future Hillsborough and HCC faculty and students promise lots of fun and games.
In addition to readings and art installations, numerous book and publishing house vendors, authors signing tables, writers associations and related organizations, refreshments and live music will add ambience to festival.
The Artists and Writers Group is devoted to creating partnerships with interested organizations to provide stimulating opportunities for our community to express and share its creativity. This event is presented in partnership with Hillsborough Community College-Ybor City Campus and Children’s Future Hillsborough.
