The annual Tennessee Williams New Orleans Literary Festival takes place each spring in New Orleans, and is named after the world-famous playwright who made New Orleans his home during one of the most creative periods in his life.

Each year, the festival assembles top playwrights, authors, actors and speakers for literary panels and to provide master classes with other published authors. There are theatrical performances of original works, readings, cocktail parties, culinary events, book signings, movie screenings, literary walking tours and more.

There are also contests offering prizes for the best one-act play, fiction, poetry and more.

And, of course, no Tennessee Williams Festival would be complete without the popular “Stella!” shouting contest held in the French Quarter. Hopeful winners, usually attired in Stanley Kowalski-style sleeveless undershirts, compete to shout the most plaintive and convincing appeal to the judges on the balcony of the Pontalba Apartments on Jackson Square. And, in the interest of fairness, women contestants are allowed to shout “Stanley!”

Special hotel discounted rates are available for festival goers and special rates are offered on various types of festival passes. Many events are free.
