After Ferguson, In Solidarity is live all over!

We’ve proofed After Ferguson: In Solidarity, and it’s now live for sale all over the internet, including: Powell’s, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and of course in our shop. As well, the Indiegogo remains active, so folks who want to give a little more can continue to donate and get perks there.

We’ve ordered the books and will start fulfilling perks as soon as they arrive! We’re proud to have completed this project. Thanks to all of our writers and artists for sharing their amazing work with us. Thanks to our supporters who’ve helped us get to this point by boosting our fundraisers. Thanks to folks who’ve bought the book so far. We’re so grateful for the support, and we’re proud to announce that we’ve made our first donation of funds to BYP100: $75 to support their work!

Updates on After Ferguson, In Solidarity

The Indiegogo for After Ferguson: In Solidarity has ended. Since we passed our goal of $500, the Indiegogo will remain active, allowing people to continue donating and getting perks through the site. We will also, of course, be listing the book in our shop soon, and folks will be able to order it there.

We’ve received the proofs, and are currently making sure the book meets our standards before we order a run from the printer and start sending them out. We want people to feel like this book is worth what we’re asking for it, and that it reflects the wishes of the artists and writers who contributed their work. (Sure, the money we’re asking is for donations to organizations that build community and create equity, but we still want this book to be worth it.)

Reminder: we’re currently open for submissions until August 31st. We’re primarily seeking poetry, essay, and memoir, but we’ll look at lit and genre fiction featuring characters from marginalized communities. For more information, go to: Submissions

Goooooaaaaalllllll!!!

We got so much support on Indiegogo, we hit our goal! We’ve raised over $500 so far, and we can’t wait to put that money back in the community to do justice work in Black communities. There’s 4 days left in the pre-sales for After Ferguson: In Solidarity. If you’ve been meaning to give and haven’t yet, now’s a great time!

The proofs are on their way from the printer, and over at IGG we announced the first two organizations that we’ll be donating to: the Dream Defenders and the Black Youth Project 100. Please give if you can, and share the campaign to help us do this work.

And don’t forget, we’re currently open for submissions, and we’ve pushed out the deadline to August 31st. We’re primarily seeking poetry, essay, and memoir, but we’ll look at lit and genre fiction featuring characters from marginalized communities. For more information, go to: Submissions
