Suggest a Speaker or an Event

Do you have a great idea for next year's festival? Email word.bluehill@gmail.com to let us know! The festival thrives on a diverse group of speakers and performers from near and far. If you know someone (or are someone) who would like to host an event or be featured in next year's festival, let us know!



We strive to book great festival participants, compensate them as much as possible, and keep as many events as we can free and open to the public. To do that, though, we need funding for the festival. If you have any grant or fundraising ideas, we would love to hear from you! Contact us at word.bluehill@gmail.com.
