Support Pulp Literature Press here to feed your appetite for well-written stories in every genre, and help create a sustainable market to support their authors and staff.



Hi, we're Mel, Jen and Sue.  We believe in fiction.  

In 2013 we launched Pulp Literature, an illustrated quarterly magazine of genre-busting short fiction, comics, poetry and art.  In 2015 we became a non-profit organization.   Since then, every cent we've made has gone back to paying creators for their work.  And the backbone of that funding has come from generous Patrons like you.  While grants, regular subscriptions, and one-off fundraisers are extremely helpful, nothing can replace the steady stream of funding from monthly patrons.  It guarantees our bank account always has the money to pay professional fees  to the writers, artists and editors who contribute to the magazine.

And for that, we can't thank you enough!

If you believe in fiction too, chip in a dollar or more on a monthly basis. In return you'll get a pdf of Issue 1 and be welcomed into the Pulp Literati secret Facebook group exclusively for Pulp Literature writers, artists, editors and patrons like you to connect.  If you're a writer, you'll also enjoy the secret patrons-only submission inbox that is always open.


Get great tales by favourite authors to keep your e-reader pages turning through your days and nights. Included in the price you’ll find gorgeous design, graphic novel shorts, and intriguing line drawings, as we work hard to make this anthology the most gorgeous you’ve ever purchased. $10 per month gets you a print subscription and a spot on our patrons' wall of honour, plus the keys to our digital library -- that's every issue we've published in epub, mobi, and pdf format! 

If you choose to support us at higher levels there are additional rewards, such writing guides and autographed novels, manuscript critiques, portraits, and writing mentorships.

Thank you so much for becoming a patron of good books for the price of a beer!

cheers
