As a Supporter, your name will be listed on our Links & Supporters page, however you can also choose to give in a name other than your own. Whether it is in tribute or memory, supply us with the name of a poet, family member, friend, loved one, even a pet, and we will list your contribution in that name. You can also choose to remain anonymous.
You may direct your contribution to a specific category if you wish.

We are not, as the Beatles put it, a registered charity, but we are hardly a for-profit concern, either. We rely on private donations.
If you would like to help, we would be most appreciative.
Either a $5, $10, $25 or more, one time donation to help pay for poetry or a short story, or an art contribution.
Whatever you give, if you give, will go to fund paying creative contributors first.
