Support Foxing Quarterly

Literary journals are a labor of love for the most part. An editor spends tons of time reading submissions, pulling their favorites, printing them and binding them into a beautiful product only for a salary of negative hundreds to thousands of dollars. I know this because I ran a print only literary journal. 

Beggars & Cheeseburgers was short lived but it made a mark in Long Beach, CA. Things unraveled after the third issue. We had a fourth issue's cover done, we had already accepted submissions, we were ready to roll. We just didn't have money. We had subscribers and anxious readers but nothing to lift us off the ground and get something printed. 

Thanks to Kickstarter, Foxing Quarterly can be funded by total strangers who appreciate the art and what we are doing.
