It's 1913's occasional funding call!
In its first 5 issues, 1913 has had the great fortune to publish some of the most egregiously exciting literary-art & art-art work being made right now... & With 1913 Press, we're amping up the machine with books of poetry, cross-genre, collaborative, and visual work by John Keene & Christopher Stackhouse, Shin Yu Pai, Biswamit Dwibedy, Arielle Greenberg & Rachel Zucker, Diane Wald, and books forthcoming from Mendi & Keith Obadike, Ward Tietz, Srikanth Reddy & Dan Beachy-Quick, and Karena Youtz. In collaboration with Tamaas, 1913 is putting out a stunningly good annual inter-translation anthology entitled READ, the results of the Paris translation seminars each June.
Unfortunately, given the state of the world (& yes, 1913's anti-capitalist "business" model, which entails getting these works into the hands that read them rather than trying to hock wares for a profit), 1913 is not only woefully underfunded, but plain UN-funded (which simply means that 1913's publications are paid for out-of-pocket by the Dollers, whose name doesn't necessarily signify what it signifies...).
...And so! 1913 is calling on YOU in its every-three-or-so-years way in case you are inclined, interested, intrigued, or impertinent enough to give yr generous & much needed support to 1913 a journal of forms/1913 Press & its project(s).
Your support will earn you rank among the saints of 1913, alongside the likes of Stein, Eva & Picasso, Braque, de Zayas, Goncharova, Tagore, De Sitter, Delaunay-Terk, Cendrars, HD, the Black Fives, Apollinaire, Harriet Tubman, Sung Chiao-jen, Duchamp, Rosa Parks, Loy, Paz, Prada, Vivien Leigh, Jimmy Hoffa, the rioting masses, and yes, the Armory Show & the Ford assembly line (sort of).

A donation of $500 entitles the giver to rank of low-modernist, undying 1913 thanks, AND a lifetime subscription to 1913 publications (which, at the rate we're going, is actually sort of a deal).
