Get Involved


As part of Eastern Washington University, we receive office space, computers, the salary and benefits for one-full time staff position (Get Lit! director) and a stipend for one graduate student assistant. We are grateful to the EWU College of Arts, Letters, and Education for that support. Every year we seek sponsorship from university programs and departments, community partners, local businesses, and individual donors like you. These sponsorships pay for author honorariums, author travel and lodging, venues, marketing efforts, posters, t-shirts, bookmarks, and much more. Please contact us at if you are interested in sponsoring an event. Your organization will receive recognition and thanks on our website, in our Festival Guide (distributed by The Inlander), on our festival PowerPoint which plays at our headlining readings, during our full day of events at the Montvale Events Center, in the JFK Library during our mini-festival in Cheney, on our social media platforms, and more.


Get Lit! Programs exists because of the generosity of the Spokane community over the past 20 years, and we couldn’t be more grateful. Every year, we have so much to celebrate: our incredible staff of graduate & undergraduate students, our loyal volunteers, the local businesses & foundations who support us, the local writers who donate their time & expertise, and so many others. Thank you so much for contributing to Get Lit! Programs!
