Sponsorship is a literary adventure designed to support the ongoing development and activity of festival participants. It is an opportunity to aid the rejuvenation and efficacy of the humanities on campus and in our local community.

By sponsoring the Literary Festival you are promoting positive change in student understanding of the importance of hosting the literary festival, in turn fostering a scholastic environment that encourages the tradition of advocating and sustaining the progress of the arts in the throes of modernity. Please afford some time and effort to maintaining and increasing creative expression.

The literary festival receives support from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources, and is also made possible by funding from North Carolina Humanities, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. We also receive support from the 2022-23 WCU campus theme: Mental Health and Wellness.
