SUPPORT THE SILK ROAD LIT FEST
The Silk Road Lit Fest is volunteer-run and all the online festival events in 2022 are free of charge to ensure everyone can participate. If you would like to help us fulfil our mission and deliver a world-class festival programme, here are some of the ways you can help.
become a sponsor
We are currently looking for corporate and individual sponsors for 2022/23 who share our values and want to contribute to our mission. If this might be you, please contact the festival's Finance Director Kamola Makhmudova ([email protected]).
make a donation
If you would like to make a donation towards the costs of the Silk Road Lit Fest, we would be hugely grateful. We will use this money to pay for administrative costs (most importantly this website and the Zoom webinar license), translating talks and workshops, and hosting future events in person and online. All card payments are processed securely by Stripe and go to the Silk Road Literary Festival account held with Lloyds Bank. Please click on the “Donate” button to proceed.
We need volunteers to help during the festival. Tasks might include providing technical support for online sessions, translating talks, and helping us with marketing. If you have energy, enthusiasm, and time to volunteer please get touch here.
buy a book
bookshop.org is providing the online bookshop for the Silk Road Lit Fest. This enables us to promote and sell books written by speakers and workshop leaders at the festival, and others we think you might enjoy, and deliver them to you at home. When you buy a book via our website, the Silk Road Lit Fest receives 10% of the sale, and you are also supporting local bookshops instead of big online retailers.
