TMR Fundraiser for Palestine

We’ve noticed a marked absence of books by Palestinian authors and/or books about Palestine through our regular pitches from publishers. As a result, we’d like to do a direct callout for Palestinian books to review, as well as for our other features such as interviews, excerpts, and “Why I Wrote This Book” features. 

In addition to this, we know that the world of literature can exist in an ethereal space of “ideas.” We want to be clear that we, the editors-in-chief at The Miramichi Reader, understand that all writing is inherently political in a world where people’s existences are politicized. So we will be donating 100% of donations through the ko-fi button on our website to GoFundMe’s supporting civilians.
