“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


Support CLMP!

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.

PS We’ll thank those who can contribute $150 or more this year-end with a copy of Ben Greenman’s very timely Don Quixotic. Written from “inside the head of Donald Trump” by the author Karen Russell calls “brilliant and wry,” and published by Antibookclub, it demonstrates one of the many reasons we love small publishers!
