DO GOOD..jpg



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

To pull off a world-class literary arts festival on a remote island is no small task. The Orcas Island Lit Festival is a non-profit and our Board of Directors and organizers are all unpaid volunteers. We are also passionate readers and lovers of books and poetry.  Are you also inspired by the literary arts? Would you like to support an off-season event to drive traffic to our beloved merchants and inn keepers? If so, please join us! As you can see below there are a number of ways to donate, sponsor and volunteer.
