About the Nomadic Press Black Writers Fund (NPBWF):
At Nomadic Press we are proud of our recent work to support Black writers through our initiative, the Nomadic Press Black Writers Fund (NPBWF), and we’d like to thank those who have contributed to the fund. Our mission is to level the playing field for Black writers.
Our campaign and fundraiser last December enabled us to provide $3,500 to our roster of 24 Black writers, which allowed us to provide $143 to each writer. We’d like to continue this work. In 2021, our goal is to raise $8,000 to support 32 Black writers with $250 each. We hope that you consider donating to the fund. No donation is too small (or too big).
$8,000.00 would allow us to guarantee 32 writers $250.00 each. A donation of $250 supports one author; $750 supports three.
Below are four ways to give to NPBWF:
3) Donate via a “ticket” through Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/…/fundraiser-nomadic-press…
4) Donate via the Cash App to $NomadicPress OR https://cash.app/$NomadicPress
