Many thanks to the generous sponsorship of Marshall Festival '15 provided by SMSU's Access Opportunity Success (AOS) program and the SMSU Office of Diversity and Inclusion that makes it possible to fund our Native American writers who are past contributors to Yellow Medicine Review, SMSU's journal of indigenous voices.

The Marshall Festival Mission

Our Festival invites the Southwest Minnesota and Marshall communities to join us in celebrating rural writing and culture, both what has come before and what is growing in literature, art, song and other creative endeavors in which Upper Midwestern and rural artists engage to express how our land and our people have shaped both the artist and the patrons.
