The On the Same Page Literary Festival is sponsored by the Ashe County Arts Council and the Ashe County Public Library. Thank you to our Corporate Sponsor, SkyLine/SkyBest, and the Page Turners.

The On the Same Page Literary Festival is made possible through the generosity of organizations, businesses, and individuals who believe in the power and beauty of the written word. One special group of individual donors is our PAGE TURNERS. Each year, they provide a large share of support for our Festival! If you enjoy the Festival, consider becoming a PAGE TURNER. During the events, any Festival volunteer with an OTSP name tag can give you more information. Learn more about how you can help HERE or call the Ashe Arts Center at 336-846-2787.
