Let’s say that you were looking to support a notable literary project this week. This week, Kickstarter has projects featured from two of our favorite literary entities, both of which (we would humbly argue) are very deserving of your cash.
First, Electric Literature is launching Recommended Reading, which will feature a new story each week (including work from Seth Fried and Ben Marcus.) Extra bonus: one of their incentives is a flask.
Not to be outdone, the fine people at Dzanc have launched a campaign to help fund their rEprint project of creating electronic edition of titles previously unavailable digitally. Contributors above a certain level can get feedback on their writing from one of Dzanc’s mentors, which is a tempting incentive indeed.
