Word is made possible by the generous support of the Maine Arts Commission and many community businesses and partner organizations as well as individual donors and volunteers. We are deeply grateful to all sponsors and supporters of Blue Hill’s literary festival. With the financial assistance of these donors, we are able to pay all festival authors and teachers and keep events free and workshop prices low, so that everyone in the community and beyond are able to participate. Thank you!

To donate, make your check out to our fiscal sponsor:
