Northern Ontario Book Fair is an annual event where Northern Ontario writers can sell their books, expand their audience, and learn new writing and marketing skills. Each year, we travel to a different Northern Ontario community. After many requests by authors, we’ve chosen Sudbury as the location of this year’s event.

The event will take place August 8-9, 2020, and will feature presentations and workshops by well-known Canadian writers and publishing professionals like Kim Fahner, Heather Campbell, Waubgeshig Rice, and many more.

We’re looking to raise $20,000 to help cover our overhead costs for this event. As a volunteer-led nonprofit, we rely on the generosity of people like you to meet our goals. With your help, we can give authors in the region access to the best publicity, training, and services. Would you consider making a cash or in-kind donation to this event?

If you sponsor the entire event, you will receive naming rights (e.g. The [Your Company] Northern Ontario Book Fair) plus all of the below benefits. Otherwise, we welcome donations in any of the following amounts, which will provide your organization with other forms of publicity:






Mention on our website and social media channels



All of the above + mention in the event press releases



All of the above + a photo op for digital and print publication



All of the above + prominent logo placement at the event + placement on our website Sponsors page for one year

I’ll be happy to provide you with more information if you need it. You can call me directly at 705-262-3268 or email if you have any questions or if you want to make a commitment. Thank you for taking the time to read and consider this letter.

On behalf of the Board of Directors,

Jessica Trudel
