We’re so into Ugly Duckling Presse’s subscription campaign! Or rather, UDP for Prez! More about what you’d be helping with, should you choose to donate this year of 2012:

THE UDP 2012 PLATFORM:
– Publish 25 titles a year.
– Print the voices of emerging, international, and “forgotten” writers.
– Provide an apprenticeship program that teaches the basics of small press publishing.
– Continue to provide a fair part-time wage and healthcare to our (one) employee.
– Grow our bookstore partnership to cover all seven continents.
– Overturn theories of the end of the book.
– Call attention to the labor and history of bookmaking while making accessibly priced and widely circulated editions.
– Provide an experience of the book free of coercion and commercialism.

THE PLEA:
Help us make our platform a reality by supporting our campaign. No donation is too small or too big. Donate online, or mail a check to our new postal address (below).This election season, help us help you improve your reading experience. Your contribution, of course, is tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Thank you!
