Chax Press Nees Your Help

Chax, one of the most innovative poetry presses, and one of the few that does large and small scale letterpress work, is doing well, and can do even better by getting some donations from you. As Charles Alexander, editor of Chax, puts it:

"The first steps we must take this year are to secure the full-time attention and salary of the Executive Director and hire an assistant. As we begin our work toward our new goals, we are being assisted by an experienced, successful organizational development consultant. One of our important commitments to an enduring future is to fund such a consultant to help us grow in a sustainable manner. As our activities become more regular and the Executive Director’s time is devoted to artistic direction, fine art book production, and long-range vision, we will also add a marketing/book sales and fundraising coordinator. In addition, we plan to expand our current Youth Education Programs (school projects in our studio, residencies in schools) and hire a Youth Programs Coordinator."

If you have at least $25, help them out. It's worth every penny, with incredible authors published in beautiful additions (Elizabeth Treadwell, Linh Dinh, etc). Info below.
