The Tenth Annual Rancho Mirage Writers Festival, with the theme “Celebrating Ten Years of RMWF,” will take place from January 31st to February 2nd, 2024.
As one of America’s premier writers festivals, the Rancho Mirage Writers Festival brings together some of the finest writers of our time to contribute to the intellectual richness of the world. The festival, held annually in Rancho Mirage, California, attracts 60 accomplished authors and over 1,000 discerning readers from across the globe to the Rancho Mirage Library and Observatory.
The festival was founded in 2014 by Jamie Kabler with the aim of bringing a world-class intellectual event to the Coachella Valley. It has since been dubbed as the “Coachella for the Brain.”
The festival’s mission is to offer a rich and diverse program that covers a range of topics, from politics, history, humor, and health to literary and genre fiction. Our writers are experts in their respective fields, including distinguished historians, respected journalists, and gifted storytellers. Many are recipients of prestigious awards such as the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, the Man Booker Prize, and are New York Times bestsellers.
