Valuing literature in our larger community
A sponsorship with the Desert Nights, Rising Stars Writers Conference is more than a pledge of financial support. It's a way of showing what you care about, prioritize, and value. It's an investment in the community.
Beyond acknowledgment and promotion on the Piper Center’s website and throughout the conference, sponsors receive complimentary registrations, discounted registration rates, free advertising, exhibitor space, and more. Individualized packages are available, too.
Sponsorships are available at varying levels of support and can be designated for a variety of different purposes, including scholarships, fellowships, faculty, naming opportunities for rooms and events, and more.
To learn more about sponsorships, you can keep reading or submit a sponsorship inquiry.
For more information about sponsorships, contact Education Programs Manager Malik Toms at 480.727.1787 or Malik.Toms@asu.edu.
