Literary Gift Giving

Umberto Boccioni (Italian)

Support literary organizations, writers, small presses and more this holiday season as you shop for your favorite writer or reader (or yourself!)

Here are some ideas:

Donate to a literary organization that supports writers. To get started, PEN America has a list of 14 literary organizations that support writers who resist and Electric Lit has a list of literary nonprofits using books to make a difference.

Buy books through your favorite local independent bookstore or order from them online. If you're not sure where to look, search through Indie Bookstore Finder.

Looking to discover a literary author published by a small press? Scroll through the catalogues by linking through Powell's list of favorite small presses.

Subscribe to a literary magazine for someone else or yourself. Discover a new one through Poets & Writers' list.

Order gift certificates for writing coach sessions with me or schedule your first one today (chloemiller(at)gmail(dot)com. I can work locally in the D.C. area or remotely.

If you are in the D.C. area, I still have a few seats open in my Advanced Memoir Writing Workshop at Politics and Prose bookstore which begins Jan. 22. Please register directly through the bookstore.

Have some more ideas? Please share them in the comments section.
