Exhibitors and Vendors

Exhibitor and Vendor Opportunity–Southwest Festival of the Written Word, Silver City, NM September 27-29, 2013

We are pleased to tell you that we have been able to extend the deadline for reserving space and advertising for the Southwest Festival of the Written Word.
Our new deadline is Friday, 8/30/2013.

The reason for the extended registration is because our graphic designer has set up the festival program in such a way that we can add advertisers through 8/30. All exhibitors’ areas will also be marked on the festival map as part of the program. And, as we mentioned before, exhibitors’ descriptions will be on our
website as well.

We have also reserved terrific room rates at several fine lodging places in Silver City. Please see our website for the list of hotels. Attached is the form for reserving space and/or advertising. You may also write us at sales@swwordfiesta.org with any questions or concerns about your exhibit.
