NYSCA NYTAP (New York State Technical Assistance Program)
Serving the Literary Publishers of New York State
New York State has one of the most active populations of literary publishers in the country, and is home to the largest number of CLMP members. The NYSCA-funded New York State Technical Assistance Program [NYTAP] is a program administered by CLMP and supported by the New York State Council on the Arts Literature Program that provides assistance specifically to the magazines and presses of New York State.
NYSCA NYTAP was first developed in the Fall of 1997 when it became clear to both NYSCA and CLMP that publishers would benefit greatly from technical assistance. NYSCA NYTAP has succeeded in engaging magazines and presses that represent the range of publishers in the state from Review: Latin American Literature and Arts, White Pine Press, The Hudson Review, and BOA Editions, Ltd. to emerging publishers such as Bright Hill Press, Blue Line, Lungfull! and Mosaic Literary Magazine.
Through NYSCA NYTAP, CLMP supports New York State’s diverse community of publishers through targeted technical services. These services aim to strengthen and connect this community while increasing the organizational capacity and fiscal stability of individual publishers. Through NYSCA NYTAP, CLMP develops and administers programs at a state level that can then be adopted more effectively by CLMP at a national level. The NYSCA NYTAP program cultivates a strong presence for independent publishing in the nation’s publishing capital—and throughout the culturally and artistically rich state of New York.
NYSCA NYTAP’s primary methods for delivering services to publishers include:
This program is funded by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
