"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 have my wholehearted endorsement and support."
—Sherman Alexie
