Be an Author Patron

Author Patrons play a critical role in bringing fantastic writers to the festival. Patrons can be individuals, businesses, or groups such as book clubs or writing groups.

Donations contribute to the travel and accommodation costs of our authors. The amount of the donation varies, depending on the distance the author travels and the length of their stay at the festival. In general,

$500 Local authors
$750 Authors within easy travel (Kingston, Ottawa, Montréal)
$1000+ International authors and authors who travel across the country (Prairies, West Coast, East Coast)

As an Author Patron, you will receive:

  • reserved front-row seating at each of your author’s events
  • a signed complimentary copy of your author’s featured book
  • an opportunity to meet and have your picture taken with your author
  • your name (or your group’s name) listed in the Festival program guide
  • and our warm thank you!

Check back here in January to find the author you’d most like to support. We’ll match you with an author you’ll love to meet!
