Call for Culinary Creations for the Annual Edible Book Festival

Saturday, March 13, 2021

Submit your entries online by March 26

ShoreLake Arts will once again hold this event in a virtual space in order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and protect our community. We appreciate and thank all of you for your understanding and ability to adapt along with us. Now, let’s talk about the Edible Book Festival!

Do you have an idea for a mouthwatering manuscript? A succulent storybook? A “punny'' take on a literary favorite? Then register your Edible Book project on the ShoreLake Arts website by Friday, March 26, 2021 and whip up something to tickle our tastebuds (and maybe our funny bones).

Your creation should be inspired by a book, or a pun on a book title, and made out of edible ingredients—sweet or savory. It may look like a book, tablet, or scroll... or be completely unique. Check out for inspiration. It’s free to participate and you’ll be eligible to win fabulous prizes from Third Place Books!

Adults and Youth may register. Youth entries are highly encouraged, maybe part of a book report for school? Kids get crafty - Join us and create some Edible Books! Yes, that's right... a book you can eat! A perfect place for book lovers to come together and create either edible things relating to books, or an edible book itself! Registration is entirely online and don’t forget to take a digital photo and upload to the form.
