THANK YOU TO OUR ANGELS

We regret we have to close out all Angel categories as our space does not permit us to handle any more.

Our angels provide a generous tax-deductible donation of $5,000. which can be paid with a check or credit card. These donations help to support honorariums and travel expenses to bring truly amazing writers to the Festival. We only have room for a limited number of angels, and when we reach that number we have to close the category.
