... at which point, you may reasonably ask, what happens if we raise more than our goal?
I'm glad you asked.
What we'd like to do this year is raise some of our pay rates that haven't gone up for a while; specifically, our rates for poetry (currently $30/poem), columns (currently $40/column), and articles (currently $50/article). We'd like your help to increase each of them a little bit; so:
- If we raise $18,500, we will increase our pay for poems to $40, from 1 January 2016
- If we raise $19,000, we will additionally increase our pay for columns to $50, from 1 January 2016
- And if we raise $19,500, we will additionally increase our pay for articles from $50 to $80, from 1 January 2016
... and if we raise any more than that, it will go into the fiction budget for 2016.
You've done an enormous thing this year: this is our most successful fund drive ever. I think we're just about certain to reach our stated goal, which allows us to keep doing everything we do, to keep all the extra material we've added over the last few years: art, the podcast, more wordcount in fiction. Now we'd like to bump up these other departments as well, and give our contributors that bit more for their efforts. Want to help? You can donate via the fund drive page or Patreon. Thanks!
