We already raised $2034 of our 10K goal… but there are only 21 days left! (20 days now)

$1, $10, $50, $500—whatever you can give to help us get off the ground is a vote for more great work by marginalized voices, and is a true blessing.

With your help, we’ll create a 200-page anthology of jubilation, side-eyes, survival tactics and jagged-edged wisdom. We’ll feature 30 poets, 6 fiction writers, and 3 nonfiction writers.

Our editors—the same ones who pick the critical and vibrant work we publish on our site—are already laying out a constellation of pieces from pathbreaking artists like Kristen Arnett, Colette Arrand, Destiny O. Birdsong, MK Chavez, jayy dodd, Natalie Eilbert, Megan Fernandes, T Kira Madden, José Olivarez, Tommy Pico, and Raquel Salas Rivera.

With proceeds from selling the anthology, we will begin paying contributors for the life-changing and necessary work they’re doing. Since we intend to always keep regular submissions 100% free, sales of our print collection would provide the jolt of revenue we need to become a self-sustaining publisher.

We’ve got all sorts of rewards for backers, so go check out the Kickstarter and join us on this journey!
