The /tƐmz/ Review: Pandemic Chapbooks 2 to Support Charitable Giving

Thank you to everyone who purchased a copy of MARCH 2020: A COVID-19 ANTHOLOGY (845 Press) with my poem "Ground Zero"! The sequel is here (featuring my recent pandemic poem "Containment"): JUNE 2020: A PANDEMIC ANTHOLOGY 


“Purchasing” the Second Round of Chapbooks: 

How to "purchase" a copy of each:
  • Given the Black Lives Matter protests against racial discrimination and the rise of domestic violence and other forms of insecurity for women and LGBTQ+ folx during the pandemic, the charitable focus has changed somewhat for this second round of chapbooks
  • Make a donation or purchase that supports women’s shelters, domestic violence shelters, anti-domestic-violence initiatives, organizations supporting LGBTQ+ folx, or organizations supporting racial equality (including American community bail funds). Also eligible are receipts from small presses / indie bookstores for books written by LGBTQ+ authors, authors who belong to marginalized sexes/genders (including women/womxn), and Black authors. There is no minimum contribution amount
  • ​Email your receipt and your mailing address to either 845 Press (thetemzreview@gmail.com) or Collusion Books (longconmag@gmail.com) to immediately receive both a PDF copy of June 2020: A Pandemic Anthology AND the access password to view A complimentary hard copy of June 2020 will be mailed to you when the hard copies have been printed
  • Receipts must be dated June 1, 2020 or later

Financial hardship:

We know that this is a very difficult time, with unprecedentedly high unemployment and massive financial pressures for individuals and households. If you are unable to make a contribution, just email either press to let us know (include your mailing address), and we will make one on your behalf! You will immediately receive both the PDF copy of June 2020: A Pandemic Anthology AND the access password to view A complimentary hard copy of June 2020 will be mailed to you when the hard copies have been printed.
