Friends’ Circle

Become a friend of the Washington Island Literary Festival

Friends of the Washington Island Literary Festival help to affirm and develop it.

  • Becoming a Friend is vote of confidence, a boost to morale, and a real helping hand to our efforts. 

  • Becoming a Friend might provide a scholarship for someone who needs help to attend.

  • Friends invest in great literature and its authors being brought to the Island.

  • Friends can also expect some benefits (shown at right), as well as the deep and abiding gratitude of the Festival Committee, which is almost-entirely volunteer and which devotes countless hours throughout the year toward this labor of love.
