Cleveland Inkubator, the largest literary festival in Northeast Ohio, returns to Cleveland for the third time today through Saturday.

This free event strives to unite readers and writers in the Cleveland area. And this year's Inkubator, located at Cleveland Public Library's main branch, is the largest yet, featuring a book swap, an open mic night and workshops hosted by different authors.

For those not looking to become the next Hemingway, have no fear. This five-day event offers workshops across the board, ranging from The Craft of Comics to Public Speaking: The Art of Audience-Author Synergy.

Inkubator is hosted by Literary Cleveland, a nonprofit organization that represents passionate writers and readers in Northeast Ohio.

"I think everyone is getting on board with the fact that Cleveland needs a better writer's scene," Literary Cleveland member Dairian Heard told News 5 Cleveland.

In addition to organizing this event, Literary Cleveland hosts regular workshops on writing, from mastering the haiku to writing the perfect sex scene.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
