To Those Who Make Us Better

September 21, 2018

Our core team here at The Word On The Street Toronto work hard to grow the festival every year. But as a Nonprofit with a small team, we wouldn’t be able to do half of what we do without the partnerships that help host this huge event for Canadian literature every year.

From our media sponsors, who help get the word out; to our print sponsors, who support us in printing the thousands of programs we distribute each year; to our national and regional sponsors, who help build our community at the festival and support us in providing better programming opportunities each year; to the friends of the festival, who contribute to our space in so many ways that we couldn’t possibly name them all!

We offer our sincere thanks to each and every one of our partners, and hope that you’ll join us in acknowledging their role in the festival each year.
