Key West Literary Seminar is a four-day annual event that explores a different literary theme each January. Readers and writers from all over the world are invited to Key West to enjoy presentations by some of the most respected writers of our time. This year, the seminar is titled “Under the Influence: Archetype and Adaptation from Homer to the Multiplex,” and explores the literary influence from Shakespeare, Homer, and African folktales to early 20th century novels and comic-book heroes. The seminar is the flagship program of a same-name organization that also offers year-around activities, such as the Writers’ Workshop Program, a scholarship program, the Young Writers Studio, and a literary walking tour. Recordings spanning the 30 years of the seminar are available in their audio archive. Littoral, their online journal, documents Key West’s rich literary history through essays, news, photographs, and other resources.
