Be a Friend of CLMP

“Independent magazines and presses provide a forum for voices that need to be heard. They are an asset to our communities, and yet their survival is precarious. CLMP plays a critical role in protecting the future of independent presses and journals. Please join me as a friend of CLMP. They get my wholehearted endorsement and support.”

—Sherman Alexie

The Friends of CLMP are a diverse group of readers, writers, lovers of literature and champions of freedom of expression who, through their generous donations, support CLMP’s services and programs. The Community of Literary Magazines and Presses is the only national service organization serving independent publishers of literary books and magazines. Support for CLMP means support for hundreds of publishers of the finest fiction, nonfiction, and poetry in print today. Read our most recent annual report for more about what we’ve been accomplishing.

Yes! I want to join the Friends of CLMP (or donate any amount) to support CLMP’s vital literary publishing community.

When you contribute $150 or more by May 31, 2017 you will receive a copy of Motherwort, a stunning new chapbook by Lyric Hunter, recently released by CLMP member publisher Guillotine Press. Your donation remains 100% tax-deductible.
