The Word Literary Festival is an annual event at which a wide range of authors, poets and others gather in Blue Hill to share their art. Word maintains a website which describes their activities in more detail, together with a schedule of upcoming events.
BHCD sponsors Word by acting as fiscal sponsor as it accepts donations to fund the costs associated with organizing and holding the festival.
The Maine Arts Commission has awarded Word, a BHCD-sponsored project, a $2,350 grant to support Word’s activities. The Maine Arts Commission is an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
Word has an excellent track record of identifying, and successfully applying for, grants and awards to support its festival and other programs.
Congratulations again, Word volunteers!
