Showing up is one amazing form of support that we really appreciate. Another is financial. Money = energy to us, and donating sends one signal (of many) that you would like our work to continue. If enjoy spaces like this and can swing it in these tight times, please consider supporting us via:

1) the Cash App to $NomadicPress OR https://cash.app/$NomadicPress;

OR 2) donating through the website at www.nomadicpress.org/donate

We have a short goal for the evening of $150.
