  • Welcome to our new president of our Board of Directors!

    We offer warm congratulations to Amber O’Reilly, poet, spoken word artist, and long-time festival volunteer, as she becomes the new president of our Board of Directors. She joined the board just over a year ago, and is already bringing new ideas and energy to the table. The board is so fortunate to have you in this new role, Amber!

A non-profit can only really flourish with an active and supportive board, and the WIWF has one of the best!
