It’s Giving Tuesday: Will You Support Big Other?

Dear Reader,

Millions of people today are giving what they can ($25, $50, etc.) because they know that every little bit helps. This year, I ask you to consider making a tax-deductible gift today to help Big Other.

As one of our readers, you know of my efforts to curate and sustain a(n) (im)possibility space for unruly, fearless, surprising, innovative art, literary and otherwise.

Big Other is a one-person operation that runs on a strand of a string, so your gift will, among many other things, help me continue to publish new experimental and innovative work from both established and emerging writers and artists.

Donations this year helped me to curate, edit, publish, and promote art, poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, not to mention Puerto Rican Writers Folio: A Hauntology, which collects vital new writing by New York State Poet Laureate, Willie Perdomo; Nuyorican Poets Café’s Executive Director, Caridad De La Luz; literary giants Giannina Braschi and Edwin Torres, and many other exemplary writers.

Donations also helped me curate, host, and promote three events: the 2021 Big Other Book Awards Ceremony and two events featuring readings from the Puerto Rican Writers Folio, one, in-person, the other, virtual.

I hope you’ll show your support for this work by including Big Other in your year-end giving plans. Whether you give $50, $100, $500, $1,000, or more, your support will help ensure that Big Other continues to publish fiction, poetry, art, hybrid works, reviews, essays, interviews, and more.
