The mission of the Orcas Island Literary Fest (OILF) is to bring together people who love to
read books with the authors who love to write them. Historically, the written word has been one of, if not the most potent, art forms practiced by mankind. At the very least, books have educated or entertained readers for centuries. Books also have the power to inspire, provoke, heal, and transform.  Our aim is to share written works that accomplish all of those feats. The Orcas Island Literary Festival will focus on welcoming a diverse group of emerging new voices, critically-acclaimed and award-winning writers, poets and literary figures from around the world to Orcas Island for a weekend of celebrating the literary arts.

We hope you'll join us.
