Rivet Journal is creating Writing That Risks
5

patrons

$27
per month
Rivet Journal showcases established and emerging authors who take risks with form and content, revel in the unexpected, and reward with imagination and insight. This is not The New Yorker. This is what happens when the rules are broken and the gloves come off. Rivet aspires to publish the next Junot Díaz, Margaret Atwood, Haruki Murakami, Italo Calvino, Kelly Link, or Octavia Butler. (And perhaps we already have.) 

Our all-volunteer team includes professional editors, creative writing professors, and published authors. We believe risky writing is the life blood of literature, and we're dedicated to providing a top-notch professional journal for writers that don't fit the mainstream. Founded in 2014 by Red Bridge Press, Rivet continues the Press' mission to discover and promote diverse writers with unique visions and voices. We publish ~40 authors per year, with a higher than average percentage of writers of color and women writers. ("Better than average" is good, but with your help, we can do way better than that.)

Please join us on this mission, and let's blow up average.

First up, our goal is to build a community of patrons (That's you!) who will help cover our basic operating expenses, such as web hosting and submissions fees. We also run a separate,annual campaign that raises funds to pay our writers and editors. (If you're a patron here, you'll also be invited to help us out when that time rolls around again. :-) 

Most of all, we hope you'll read and share Rivet Journal with your friends and fellow readers.

Welcome aboard and thank you!

Let's do it with the lights on!

Hosting fees are sexy! Well, maybe not. But keeping the lights on(line) is a pretty great thing. By helping us make this goal, you will ensure that readers can access all issues of Rivet Journal any time, any where. You'll also be making it possible for hundreds of as-yet-undiscovered along with well-established writers to submit their work for review.

Please pitch in to cover these recurring costs, and we will bring you the best in experimental, hybrid, and just plain awesome writing!
