A steady and reliable source of assured income, especially multiplied by several supporters, helps us to better plan our year, and choose where to make investments in the magazine. It gives us some stability that year to year reliance on uncertain grant funding cannot give us, allowing us to buy a couple of short stories and/or several poems!

What this helps us to do:
We’ll be honest with you. We have depended on grant funding for a long time. It’s a reality in Canadian publishing. But the grants don’t cover all our costs, especially the costs of marketing and promotions.
Having patron support of this level is something we dream of, and Patreon gives you a simple way to manage it so your pocketbook doesn’t take a huge once a year hit. And we won’t pester you for new donations, the way some charities and non-profits do.
This allows us to purchase at least 3 short stories from 5,000 to 6,000 words!

What you'll receive:
All of the above, and if you attend the Copper Pig  AGM in person, this donation gives you a voting membership in the society.  We figure if you can get to Edmonton in January, you deserve some kind of reward, after all.

And by the way, you are a totally awesome and generous benefactor.
