Elephant Mountain Literary Festival, July 12- 15 in gorgeous Nelson, British Columbia, is a literary celebration for readers and writers and a meeting of creative minds. Literary Couples is this year’s theme: Esi Edugyan and Steven Price are joined by Susan Musgrave and Stephen Reid for fabulous readings and conversation. With our 100-mile Opening Gala that honours local writers and pairs them with local beers, a special evening of performance by our all-star lineup, and panel discussions on the creative process make Elephant Mountain Literary Festival the place to be this July.

Help us grow: spring for the Fest! This campaign makes it possible to bring the best literary minds to Nelson for the enjoyment of writers and readers alike. With your help we aim to raise $5,000 by June 15, 2018. And of course, there are perks.

·       $20 gives you a special toast (and a drink!) when you attend our 100-mile Opening Gala (tickets at emlfestival.com).

·       $50 gives you a free ticket to the 100-mile Opening Gala event, where we’ll raise a glass to you and put your name on our donor board at the event.
