The events of the 23rd Annual Literary Arts Festival are made possible in part by Poets & Writers through grants it has received from The James Irvine Foundation and the Hearst Foundations, by the support of WACC, the World Arts & Cultures Committee of Grossmont College, and by the many patrons who have generously contributed to the Foundation for Grossmont and Cuyamaca College’s Creative Writing Fund.
