Thank You All

Dear friends of the Southwest Festival of the Written Word, a heartfelt THANK YOU for your donations during Give Grandly. Your generosity will help us not just to keep the festival going, but to keep it free, and to keep attracting wonderful authors.
Of course these are uncertain times. Of course we have no idea what the world will look like in 2021, when our next festival is due. Of course you have bigger things to worry about than a book festival. But we’ll be here, in some form or another, sharing the truth and beauty and solace of the written word.
From all of us at SWFWW

Enriching Life Through Learning in Community

We respectfully acknowledge that the entirety of southwestern New Mexico is the traditional territory, since time immemorial, of the Chis-Nde, also known as the people of the Chiricahua Apache Nation. The Chiricahua Apache Nation is recognized as a sovereign Native Nation by the United States in the Treaty of Amity, Commerce, and Friendship of 1 July 1852 (10 Stat. 979) (Treaty of Santa Fe ratified 23 March 1853 and proclaimed by President Franklin Pierce 25 March 1853).
