Electric Literature Belongs to You

Become a member to support our work in 2017

Dear Reader,

As 2016 comes to a close, all of us at Electric Literature are taking stock of everything we’ve accomplished this year — from the great writing we’ve published to the new readers we’ve reached — and making resolutions for the year to come. Like many publishers and news outlets, these last few months have prompted serious reflection about our values and the service we provide to readers. What is the role of literature in speaking out against injustice, and what is our role in facilitating that speech?

Amidst these complex questions, there are a few things we know for certain. Electric Literature is a nonprofit driven by our mission: to support writers, preserve literature’s vibrancy, and to make great writing accessible to all. To serve a mission is a profound blessing and responsibility, and this month, I’m asking you to help us continue that work by becoming an Electric Literature member.

As member, you are an essential part of our organization, which, because it is a nonprofit and owned by no one, belongs to everyone. You also get full access to over 230 stories in the Recommended Reading archives, the option to submit your own fiction year-round, and 20% off everything in our store. All for just $5 a month.

Will you help us reach our goal of 100 new members by joining today?

Best wishes, and happy holidays,

Halimah Marcus
Executive Director, Electric Literature
