Dear Kickstarter Backers:
I'm thrilled to report that we've met our goal in advance of our Wednesday night deadline. It's incredible!
I want again to thank you so much for making this happen!
Since we have the two days left we now have the opportunity to surpass our goal. It would be so exciting, in addition to all the things we are already be able to do, to raise additional funds to help promote the books that we will publish.
We're so proud of our kickstarter backers and would be delighted to have a few more people join the team. So if you know anyone who was hoping to participate, all the rewards are still available, and we would be delighted to expand the Futurepoem family.
Hope you enjoy these videos of folks involved with Futurepoem talking about our 10th anniversary, our mission and our kickstarter campaign.
And once again here's to our amazing accomplishment. Thanks to all of you for your support!!!
Dan Machlin, Executive Director

Thank you everyone who have already pledged to Futurepoem's Kickstarter campaign! We're really off to a great start.
For those of you who are in or near New York City we will be having a Kickstarter Reading/Party tomorrow evening Thursday 1/19 in Brooklyn with some amazing readers. Please come out, have some wine and cheese on us, enjoy a great reading, and please bring any friends you think might be interested in learning more about Futurepoem and our Kickstarter project.
