We’re a big-hearted event in a small-town setting: a readers’ and writers’ festival named for the mountain that overlooks beautiful Nelson, British Columbia, EMLF brings in outstanding Canadian authors and presenters while celebrating our exceptional local talent with a line-up of readings and discussion panels to engage, inspire, and entertain.

Help the Festival Grow!

Since the first Elephant Mountain Literary Festival in 2012, our growing list of visiting authors has become a who’s who of Canadian talent, and our regional writers continue to make us proud.

We need your help to continue to bring writers and readers together to celebrate the best in Canadian Literature, right here in Nelson. There are two ways to donate! You can donate here, or through our GoFundMe Campaign here the perks will apply which ever way you decide to contribute.

With your help we aim to raise $5,000 these are the 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 event, where we’ll raise a glass to you and put your name on our donor board at the event.

·       $100 gives you a free ticket to our Saturday night gala-of-the-stars, and a chance to chat with the Saturday Gala authors in a special, pre-event Green Room social

·       $500 gives you a Gold Pass to the festival, lunch out with the author of your choice (and we’ll pay for lunch, too!) plus a copy of the author’s latest book

·       $1,000 gives you a Gold Pass to the festival, copies of the latest books of all the visiting authors, a chance to chat with the Saturday gala authors in a special, pre-event Green Room social and dinner with the author of your choice
