Fundraising and Upcoming Events
Hello Montana Mouthful community!
In Helena, we’re welcoming warm weather after a rather cool spring, but behind the scenes, things have been heating up since we received our 501(c)3 nonprofit status. We’ve been pulling together ideas for fundraisers, events, and workshops, so we can continue to publish this beautiful literary magazine.
Montana Mouthful is a free digital magazine with a print-on-demand option. Our vision is to continue to provide the digital magazine for free, and to keep the print-on-demand option, but to eventually sell print subscriptions in the future. Another primary goal is to pay our contributors, since we understand and appreciate how much work goes into creating great writing and artwork. To accomplish these goals, we need your help, so we’ve attached a donate button to this post on our Facebook page. If you enjoy the magazine, we’d appreciate any donation to keep it going.
Furthermore, one of our first local events will be at Snow Hop Brewery on Wednesday, August 28th. If you’re in the Helena area, please join us and learn more about our literary magazine. Montana Mouthful publishes short fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and artwork from writers and artists around the world, but we love publishing work from fellow Montanans. We hope to see you there!
Other upcoming fundraisers and events include a Patreon campaign and some winter writing workshops. We’ll be sure to keep you posted as these events come up.
Last but not least, as a reminder, we’re currently open for submissions for our “Schooling” issue until August 12th, with the publication date scheduled for September 23rd, so keep polishing those school-related stories, essays, poems, and images.
Thanks so much for your readership, submissions, and support!
