General Information


LITERARY FESTIVAL: Every year, the Millbrook Literary Festival, sponsored by Dactyl Foundation, features nationally recognized authors and promotes our talented local and regional writers, with panels that are accessible and interesting to all ages. This festival presents many timely, thought-provoking, and thoroughly entertaining authors and illustrators participating in panel discussions, readings, and signings throughout the day at the Millbrook Library. Whether we prefer printed books, ebooks, or audiobooks, reading is not something we do strictly in isolation. The Millbrook Literary Festival brings together a vibrant community of readers and writers to discuss how what we read — in history, culture, science, politics, and etc — relates to our everyday lives. Festival Location: 3 Friendly Lane, Millbrook, New York 12545, in Dutchess County.

LITERARY FICTIION AWARD: Dactyl Foundation offers a $1000 award to any living literary fiction author, writing in English, who has published a book-length work, novel or collection of short stories, in any year. To be considered for the award, an author must be nominated by a peer, another published literary fiction author, who must submit a review of one of the author’s works to Dactyl Review. No entry fee.
