Let's try for one more stretch goal!

Thanks to our incredible backers, we've reached our second stretch goal, and we are already on our way to the next one!  With your continued help, we're going to set our course for one more fat chunk of land, and sail straight toward it.

LET'S TRY TO MAKE IT TO $4,000 IN THE NEXT 2 DAYS!

If we can get to $4,000, not only will you get all of the rewards you selected, but you'll get a PDF copy of the NEXT issue of Poiesis (#7) and an exclusive PDF "greatest hits" collection of 100 pieces of the best poetry, fiction, and art published on Alternating Current over our twenty years in publishing, for reaching the first stretch goal, AND a PDF copy of the NEXT issue of Footnote (#2) and a prize packet for reaching our second stretch goal, AND ...

... You'll get an awesome new prize!  If we can reach $4,000, I'll compile an amazing poetry spoken-word (and some music) MP3 album, complete with digital cover and inserts, that keeps the spirit of our new history journal, Footnote.  The album will feature small press authors and poets reading their favorite pre-1922 public domain poems, putting the pieces to music if they so desire, bringing a touch of the new to meet a touch of the old.  This album will encapsulate the very heart and soul of Footnote: fresh takes and perspectives on history.  I will even contribute "The Highwayman" by Alfred Noyes, my favorite poem of all time!

But this album will ONLY be compiled if we make our new stretch goal of $4,000 in the next 2 days!  2 DAYS LEFT!

IF YOU CAN UP YOUR PLEDGE IN THE NEXT 2 DAYS:

You'll get another reward from me.  I'll be making handmade poetry wine charms, like the example you see here, only they won't be customized with names, they'll feature quotes and snippets of poems from some of the greats: Robert Frost, Jack Kerouac, Sylvia Plath, Walt Whitman, you name it.  No, really, YOU name it.  Here's the deal: You name the authors you want, and I'll find cool snippets and make you wine charms.

  • If you up your pledge by $10.00, you'll get a set of 2.
  • If you up your pledge by $15.00, you'll get 3.
  • If you up your pledge by $20.00, you'll get 5.
  • If you up your pledge by $35.00 or more, you'll get a full set of 8, plus a hand-decorated carrying tin to store them.

So let's get the word out that there are only 2 MORE DAYS!  We have $414 to go to make this new goal in 2 days!

Sincerely,
Leah Angstman
