Prolit Magazine is a journal that sets out to recognize, interrogate, and resist capitalism’s influence on contemporary art and literature, both by publishing work that discusses money, work, and class, and by its dedication to making that work accessible at no cost.

It is important to me that there will never be any financial barriers to readers trying to enjoy the magazine, but at the same time I also recognize that the contributing artists should be compensated in some way for the time and labor that went into their work. In an attempt to do both of those things, I am here on this strange platform attempting in a way to use it wrong: I am asking for small donations from anyone who has a small amount to share, with the promise that you will get nothing in return.

There will be no exclusives, no early access, no pins or patches, no benefits to you whatsoever. I don't want to create something that gives more to those with means, and I don't want anyone to miss out or to have a lesser version of this because they do not. If you donate, it should be because you can afford it, you believe in this project and expect you will like it, and because you want to help provide some payment to our contributors. If you cannot or do not want to donate, that's entirely fine and I hope you still read and enjoy. 

I will not be taking any of the donated amount for myself, nor will I use it for anything other than to pay contributors equally. Whatever the amount accrued at the time of an issue's publication will be divided according to the number of people that are published in that issue. It will be simple and transparent and as equal as I can think to make it. This may end up being a very small or a pretty reasonable payment depending on how things add up--it's an experiment, and hopefully it will be a successful one. In either case, thanks very much for your attention, your consideration, and for any kind of support you can provide.

Give as much as you can/want to. No perks. The total amount accrued before the next issue is published will be divided among all contributors.
