This is Tessara, here with a couple of quick updates on MGP’s goings-on.
As you may have noticed, MGP’s third book, My Body Asunder, is now available through our book shop, as well as through major retailers such as Amazon and Powells. We’re going to have an interview with the author up on the blog later this month, so keep an eye out for that. We’re also planning a couple of guest blogs, writers to be announced.
Now that we’re past the gamut of the holiday season, we’ll be tabling at events and supporting our writers in Portland-area readings, which we’ll be announcing on our Facebook as they are confirmed.
We’re also planning a couple of campaigns, where we’ll be asking for your help in getting our books into bookshops and libraries all over. More info to come, so we hope you’ll look for that and help us out.
As a reminder, I want to mention that we are open for submissions, and would love to look at your work. If you identify with our mission and values, send along your poetry or memoir for our consideration!
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!
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
Support our press by buying a book in our shop, or share our site on your Facebook or Twitter!
We’ve been pretty silent for the last month, but the first of our books is now available in the shop: Fallen/Forever Rising, a book of poetry dedicated to Black victims of US police violence. You can pick it up here.
We’re working behind scenes on the next two books, and should have some more news coming up pretty soon—subscribe to keep up!
