DONate & SPonsor

 

It takes a village (or a close-knit island) . . .

Pulling off a world-class literary festival on a remote island is no small feat. The Orcas Island Lit Fest is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and our directors and organizers are all unpaid volunteers. We are also passionate readers, writers, and lovers of books. Are you inspired by literature? Would you like to support an off-season event to drive traffic to our merchants and innkeepers? Please join us!

There are a number of ways to sponsor OILF. Learn more below.
