Pike Artworks and The Milford Readers and Writers Festival
Pike Artworks was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in January 2017 as an umbrella organization for the Milford Readers & Writers Festival. It provides an opportunity for friends and donors of the Festival to enjoy a tax benefit for their contributions. It is registered under the Pennsylvania Department of State, Bureau of Corporations and Charitable Organizations and with the Federal Government as a 501 (c) (3). Pike Artworks was formed by a dedicated group of community volunteers from the Upper Delaware Region to ensure that the Readers & Writers Festival is an annual event. It also provides the opportunity to create and support other cultural events in the future should the need and desire arise.
Bob Levine founded a New York City law firm specializing in intellectual property. He also has acted as a literary agent, and produced the film That Championship Season, with Robert Mitchum.
Carol McManus serves as co-chair of the Milford Readers and Writers Festival. She is an award-winning author, professional speaker, and radio host. She is passionate about the written word, and helping others discover their voice through poetry and prose.
