Become a Sponsor

Now entering its ninth year, Salman Rushdie’s World Voices Festival has morphed from a festival of literature into a cultural experience. Every March for the past seven years, more than 20,000 brochures are sent to Tri-State area to broad cross section of literary consumers, art lovers, and cultural influencers. Twenty-thousand more brochures are distributed at major cultural venues and hubs with the help of our media and venue partners in the weeks leading up to the Festival. Online the numbers are even more promising, our web traffic for last year’s Festival peaked at 11,000 visits a day.
