About Crow & Cross Keys

Crow & Cross Keys is a new, online literary journal that plucks fiction and poetry from skeletal trees and gives it a place to take root.

We would love to pay our contributors, and with your help, we can!

CCK is, and always will be, free to read* and free to submit -- our patreon has been designed so that we can begin to pay our contributors for the wonderful and deserving work they produce. The patreon and our soon-to-be merch are our only revenue streams and any money earned from them is for the journal and the journal only. 

If you love CCK, and you're able, please consider joining one of our patreon tiers. 




*with the exception of our Secret Stories and any print- or e-anthologies we may produce in future.
Goals
$37.56 of $493.08 per month
If we reach £350 per month, we can afford to pay a £5 honorarium for each piece of new writing and begin to back pay our previously published contributors. 

Our goal is to pay per piece, not per post, so this amount will allow us to pay for up to three pieces for every publication slot each month for both new writing, and our previously published writing.

Once we have back paid all of our existing contributors, funds will be split between paying for each new piece of writing that enters our schedule, the cost of the website and exciting future print projects. 

For complete transparency, we are required to pay tax on our earnings once we exceed a certain amount, even if we're not for profit. This goal allows for the 20% tax required in addition to the 8% fee we pay to Patreon.
