Co-produced by Lamprophonic and Summer on the Hudson, AmpLit Fest is a free, daylong festival that brings authors of all backgrounds, styles, and levels of recognition to center stage.
With readings, workshops, panels, and a community market, AmpLit Fest makes one of life’s most solitary acts — writing — a public celebration.
The 2018 AmpLit Fest will take place on Saturday, June 9th, from 12 to 5 pm.
Schedule coming soon.

Where is AmpLit Fest?
AmpLit Fest is held on Pier i, the W 70th Street Pier in Riverside Park South. It’s easiest to enter the park at W 68th St. and Riverside Blvd. The closest subways are the 1 (take to 66th St.) or the 2/3 (take to 72nd St.). Note, if you’re taking the subway, there will still be a 5-10 minute walk from the train. The closest bus stop is the M72 bus stop at W 69th St. and Riverside Blvd. Once you reach W 68th St. and Riverside Blvd., walk down the ramp at the righthand side and at the bottom of the hill cross the bike path
