Litfest Sponsorship

Clearly, LitFest is a collaborative endeavor that requires broad engagement by the campus, Dayton, and larger literary communities. This is a grand effort, with the potential for far-reaching effects, and we cannot accomplish this work alone. We therefore extend this invitation to join us in making LitFest 2013 a reality and in extending its impact throughout the campus and city of Dayton. 

First, if you would like to be involved in helping plan, promote, or orchestrate LitFest 2013—or future festivals—please let us know.  We will work with you to find a meaningful and manageable role! In addition, if you know of other people, events, or programs that could help us promote our events and/or advance the LitFest mission, please help us connect with them, as well. We want to reach as broad and diverse an audience as possible.

Of course, we also need partners in funding. For previous LitFest programs, we have received financial support from this broad range of partners:
