• A Call to Action: Support Independent Publishing Today

    The Goldhirsh Foundation and an anonymous donor have generously offered us $75,000 in matching grants. To receive the $75,000, we need to raise $75,000, and we only have until January 1 to do it. If you’ve donated to LARB in the past, we need your help again. If you’ve never donated to LARB, now is the time to do it. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, every dollar we raise goes directly to paying the writers and artists that we publish and you read every day, and the staff whose tireless work makes it all possible.

    LARB has grown across all sectors in the past year, and the Blog is no exception. We’ve added regular features from our LARB Channels, published original essays and reviews for the first time, and completely redesigned our website. We have much more planned for the coming year, but we need your help.

    We’ve assembled some tasty thank-you gifts to whet your giving appetite, including a digital ePub anthology highlighting interviews, articles and essays from 2014, selected for you by LARB‘s diverse team of section editors; a typewriter Tom Hanks has personally donated to help us reach our goal; gift certificates from the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Pop Physique and the Short Order and Short Cake bakery and restaurant; signed books from some of our favorite authors, and more.

    Please help us reach our goal. Give now at the $50, $150, $250 or any level you can afford, and help us keep the grand tradition of independent publishing alive. Thank you so much.
