Thank you so much to everyone who supported our end of the year campaign. We really really appreciate your help and encouragement. Thanks to you we successfully met and exceeded our end of year fundraising goal through combined donations through our website, facebook and other platforms. With that support, we are excited to publish some amazing new books of poetry and cross-genre literature in 2020. It will also enable us to support our publication opportunities like our annual open reading period and our new Other Futures Award in the spring/early summer. In addition, your support will help us continue to develop our new online publishing space futurefeed that supports online residencies by noted writers and to continue to host free literary events for the public in New York City and nationally. It will also enable us to pay our freelance editors and designers a fair wage that supports the quality work they are doing on behalf of our authors and the press.
All of our new and recent supporters are featured on our Supporter page on our web site.
If you missed our end of year campaign and would still like to learn more about ways to get involved, please visit our Ways to Support page.
Thanks again for your continued and generous support!
