Next year will mark 25 years since the very first issue of American Short Fiction was published, and in December, we’re hoping to raise $5,000 to help us continue well into the next quarter century. For our editors and staff, bringing these stories to readers around the world is a genuine labor of love, and it takes a large group of dedicated writers, editors, artists, subscribers, and supporters to make it happen.
Since we’re a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, charitable contributions made to American Short Fiction are tax-deductible, and every dollar we raise will help us continue to champion the best short fiction by new and established authors. Specifically, funds raised this December will help us print next year’s issues and will allow us to make some necessary upgrades to our website.
