10 Days Left to Support Small Press Publishing

47% fundedWith 10 days left of both our Kickstarter campaign and our submission call for issue 6 of The Quilliad, we’re feeling proud of how far we’ve come, thankful for our supporters, and excited for the future. We’ve sent out the first round of early acceptances for issue 6, and we’ve been busy posting content here on our blog, from details about our participation in #raopoetryday to event coverage, an artist project spotlight, book reviews, and parrot poetry. And in addition to online engagement and sales, being on store shelves and in local zine libraries shows us that there’s interest in what we do.

Funds raised will go toward publishing costs such as printing and paying contributors. And backers get some pretty great rewards in return, from poetry on demand and art prints to copies of The Quilliad and books from our upcoming print run and work by our talented staff members. Many of our rewards are highly personalised, and several are limited editions. We believe in giving back whenever we can, and that includes providing tangible incentives for our Kickstarter backers.

We are endlessly grateful to all our supporters thus far, from our backers to those who have spread the word, attended our events, and read The Quilliad and our blog. Our campaign is currently at 47%, and with your support, we can achieve our goal and take the next steps toward establishing ourselves as a small press. Every little bit counts, including a $5 pledge or sharing a link to our project page.
