Become a Sponsor for DLF

Dear Patron of the Arts,

Would you like to meet famous authors?

The 2023 Dahlonega Literary Festival is March4, 2023 and will include panel discussions, presentations, and book signings. All of these events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.

The Dahlonega Literary Festival is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization as an outreach program of Lumpkin Literacy. Ours is an intimate festival about books and authors. Our mission is to promote interaction between readers and writers in a relaxed, informal environment so those attending have an opportunity to meet and interact with the authors. In addition to attending speaking events and book signings, Pulitzer, Booker, Hugo, and Caldecott level Sponsors have the opportunity to have lunch with their favorite authors at a local restaurant or attend our Saturday social event.

As you can imagine, festival expenses add up quickly, and we need your financial support to make our event a success. Your tax-deductible contribution will help with fees, travel expenses and lodging for the authors, and aids in ensuring most festival events remain free-of-charge. As a patron, you will receive the benefits listed below and on the pdf Patron Response Form. Most importantly, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you have preserved and advanced the literary arts in Dahlonega.

Contributions can be mailed to DLF by clicking the pdf button below and downloading and completing the Patron Response Form.  Mail the completed Patron Response form with your donation check to: The Dahlonega Literary Festival, PO Box 1401, Dahlonega, GA 30533, or you can donate online at any time with PayPal by clicking on any webpage  “Donate” button.

Thank you, in advance, for your support.  We look forward to seeing you in March!
