Supporting FootHills Publishing
Over the years various people have inquired about helping to support the work we do here at FootHills. When we first started publishing I made a commitment to not seek grant money to fund the work we do. I wanted poetry to stand on its own and not be beholden to foundations, government or private corporations. Needless to say, it has been a struggle over these 20 years, and still is. Paper, gasoline, expenditures in general have gone up and poetry is still . . . poetry . . . not quite the same sales appeal as Nora Roberts or Danielle Steele.
I have wrestled with the idea of asking for help from individuals. I have done so in a private way once in awhile over the years but have never put out a public request or offering. There is something stubborn and independent in my nature that makes that a hard thing for me to do. But, as costs have risen and concerns, small but persistant, about FootHills' viability linger, I have decided to offer a way for individuals to help support our work that I am comfortable with.
I would like to offer two categories of support for the press. Both would be reimbursed by receiving FootHills Publishing books and would actually be more of a subscription than a gift of support.
For an annual donation of $100 a supporter would be able to order a
FootHills Publishing book every other month.
For an annual donation of $200 a supporter would be able
to order a book a month from our list.
Our book prices range from $6 to $20 per book, plus shipping, so a supporter could come very close to receiving the same dollar value in books as the amount they donated.
This is a way of accepting support for the press I would be comfortable with. I want to return value to anyone who chooses to help us in our endeavors. What better way than to have poetry be given for supporting poetry!
If you want to help us along by becoming a supporter of FootHills drop me an email, send payment through the mail or make a Paypal payment by clicking on the approproiate icon below. We will then be in touch about the procedure for ordering your books from us.
Thank you in advance for helping to support the work we have been doing for 20 years and hope to continue
to do for a long time to come.
