As Spark: A Creative Anthology enters the final hours of its Kickstarter fundraiser, please consider pledging a dollar or two and sharing the link with others. A pledge as low as $1 helps us reach our goal, and just $4 secures you an eBook copy of Volume I. Higher pledges come with rewards such as personal critiques and copies of the original artwork we will be using for the covers of our first volumes. Remember: Kickstarter operates on an “all or nothing” model: if we do not reach (or exceed) our goal, no pledges are collected and we get nothing.
Spark was founded with the goal of providing a high-quality market where emerging writers are published alongside established authors and poets. To maintain that high quality, I am committed to the idea that every contributor should be paid for their writing—whether they are experienced professionals or first-time submitters.
Unfortunately, while I am funding this project myself, I am only able to offer token and semi-professional payments. That’s just not enough. When you choose to support Spark: A Creative Anthology, not only are you getting great writing, you enable Spark to pay its contributors the professional rates I know they deserve.
Please take a minute to watch and share our Project Update video on Kickstarter or YouTube, read and share one of the recent news articles about Spark, and make your pledge at http://SparkAnthology.org/support today.
