Lit Fest is our annual celebration of culture in literary work and storytelling. This week will be a compilation of workshops put together by our magazines which will invite the campus community to see what happens behind the scenes and invite students to explore the relationship between storytelling and creating content. As a part of our committee statement for the year, we stand by amplifying BIPOC voices, acknowledging and taking action on the issues that have historically needed to be addressed in the publishing + digital media industry. Our events & activities is created by students, for students. This year we are pleased to host Chicago rapper, poet & record producer, Noname; and Podcast Network CEO & Journalist Juleyka Lantigua-Williams; in addition to a variety of other events & activities created by our publications. All our events are free and open to students, faculty, staff, Union members and their guests. Attending and participating in these events gives you an opportunity to enter a giveaway for items from local Madison businesses  (Red Square Flowers, Green Life Trading Co., and Community Pharmacy, and more!).
