Statement of Pricing Principles:  The Washington Island Literary Festival, dedicated to bringing the best literary voices and conversation to Washington Island at a reasonable cost, is a (virtually) all-volunteer organization.  Through our heart-felt efforts, and through generous support from Friends of the WILF, we seek to defray costs as much as possible for our attendees.
