Did you know that NMW is 100% independent, ad-free, anti-paywall, not beholden to any grants, governmental or otherwise? We do our work solely for our contributors, submitters, and readers. We also don’t have “unpaid interns,” everyone who helps to make this possible is compensated.

We’re constantly innovating to bring more opportunities and encouragement to new, aspiring, and established writers. We push the envelope and we lick our own stamps. Your support matters.

NMW needs your help to ensure the future of literature is not homogenized and dumbed-down by the zero-sum game of corporate data and profit. It’s a fight we can win, but it’s a fight.

NMW Literary Journal & Awards will keep showing up — as long as you do too.
