Today Only, Become a Member and Get a Free, Exclusive Enamel Pin

So many people wanted our [sic] pin that we're giving everyone another shot at this exclusive swag

Intern McKayla let us borrow their jacket

Last week, we offered our readers a free, exclusive [sic] pin if they signed up to be an Electric Lit member THAT DAY. You had less than 24 hours to jump on a deal that let you proudly, stylishly proclaim to the world that a) you’re an EL supporter, b) you’re like this on purpose, c) you’re a ruthless editor, or d) all of the above.

Well, if you missed out, good news: we’re doing it again. If you sign up to be an Electric Lit member before MIDNIGHT tonight, December 27, we’ll send you a free pin. Original post follows!


As you’ve probably noticed because we talk about it constantly, we’re trying to get 1,000 Electric Lit members to sign up before 2020 rolls around. And for an incredibly limited time (less than 24 hours!), if you pitch in to help us reach our goal, your membership will get you not only the usual perks but EXCLUSIVE SWAG.

Sign up to be an Electric Lit member before the end of the day today, Tuesday, December 17 Friday, December 27, and we’ll send you one of our new [sic] enamel pins, designed by Stephanie Kubo, for free.* Nobody else has or can get these yet! 

Here it is on my coat! Good, right?

If you don’t know [sic], it’s often used as a piece of editorial shade that means “I didn’t misspell this, the other person did.” You might use it when, say, reporting on a Trump tweet. But what it really means is “thus,” as in, “this is not a mistake, this is how it was supposed to be.” In other words, you can finally tell the world that you’re like this on purpose in the pithiest, nerdiest way possible!

We’re already more than halfway to our goal, but that means we have nearly halfway to go. Join us, and you’ll get this exclusive merch to announce your new membership—and to tell people not to bother you because you’re supposed to be this way. For one day only, get down with the [sic]ness and help EL keep publishing into the next decade.

This offer is only good until midnight tonight, so don’t hesitate! Become a member today.

* U.S. only
