Dear Sinister Wisdom Sisters,

Because of you, Sinister Wisdom says yes. Yes, to publishing the letters of Audre Lorde and Pat Parker last February as a part of our Sapphic Classics series. Yes, to the extra thick, extra long, extra important current issue Sinister Wisdom 110: Dump Trump, featuring the best contemporary lesbian political writing. Yes, to publishing a 2019 calendar that features our herstory and our visions for a lesbian future. Yes, to publishing, year in and year out, thoughtful, beautiful, provocative and important issues of the longest-running lesbian journal in the US.


Thank you for making the YES possible.

I continue to be thrilled to work as a volunteer, editing and publishing Sinister Wisdom. I do it because I believe in lesbian culture, lesbian literature, lesbian art, and its power to change our world. I know you do too. I am writing today to ask you to donate to Sinister Wisdom to support the work of the journal.

For more than forty years, Sinister Wisdom has published creative work by lesbians that resists, ignites and inspires us to build a new world—a world with more justice, more peace, and more prosperity for all. We begin to build that world in our imaginations, supported by our literary and artistic cultural creations. Sinister Wisdom thrives because lesbian imagination endures and thrives. Four times each year, Sinister Wisdom releases a new issue, on the fifteenth of the first month of each quarter. Sinister Wisdom has a stellar line up for 2019. For subscribers, lesbian goodness keeps coming to your door—every single quarter.

Subscriptions are important, but they do not cover all of the bills. That is why contributions are so important. There is no limit to our imaginations for what Sinister Wisdom can produce. What I need is your continued support to make it all a reality. Can you make a charitable gift to support Sinister Wisdom?

There are four easy options for making your gift to Sinister Wisdom:

1. Subscribe to Sinister Wisdom--and give gift subscriptions to the journal. You can note gift subscriptions in the note section of the paypal order or just email me with the details--I handle all of the subscription processing! (Purchasing and sharing our calendar is helpful too! Order five today for your holiday gift giving!)

2. Make a donation directly to Sinister Wisdom through Paypal at the Sinister Wisdom site.

3. Become a monthly sustainer of Sinister Wisdom by making a sustainer gift through Paypal here. We are hoping to double our monthly sustainers from 19 to 38 during this campaign. We have already added one!

4. You can send a check through the mail to our Florida address: Sinister Wisdom, 2333 McIntosh Road, Dover, FL 33527.
 
As always, I appreciate financial support for Sinister Wisdom in any amount.

A small group of people always is responsible for sustaining community institutions like Sinister Wisdom. For Sinister Wisdom to continue to thrive, we need to continue to expand our subscribers and supporters. Thank you for the support you have already shown Sinister Wisdom, and I look forward to thanking you for a donation of any amount to the journal.

Every fall, I am blown away by the support we receive during our fall fundraising campaign and this year is no different. This fall, we already  have raised $2,501 or about 33% of our fundraising goal! We have added 1 new sustainer! Thank you to everyone for saying YES to Sinister Wisdom. 

But, there is still more work to do. In order to ensure all that is planned in 2019 will publish, Sinister Wisdom has to raise $7,500 by the end of the year. This includes subscriptions and renewal, additional gifts, and  donations. We have just under two months left to meet our goal. To continue to publish Sinister Wisdom, I need your support.

To those of you who have already given to support Sinister Wisdom through the next year, I thank you! I cannot even begin to express how much it means to everyone at Sinister Wisdom, including myself. We are entirely dependent on subscriptions, volunteers like myself, and gift contributions. I am both humbled and privileged to work on Sinister Wisdom to keep lesbian art, culture, and literature alive. Please share our campaign--and our work if you haven't already--with your friends and family. Sharing is one of the best ways to support Sinister Wisdom

I hope you will join me and support Sinister Wisdom as generously as you can. Thank you for being a part of the creative arena we have created. 

In sisterhood,

Julie
