Your Generous Donation Can Help Support BlazeVOX. Donate Today!!  

Now in existence for over fifteen years, BlazeVOX continues to strive to expand its programs and offerings to the literary world. We hope that you will be able to take part in one or more of the many exciting events that we are offering this year and experience firsthand the pride we take in supporting innovative fictions and wide ranging fields of contemporary poetry.

Our books push at the frontier of what is possible with our innovative poetry, fiction and select non-fiction and literary criticism. Our fundamental mission is to disseminate poetry, through print and digital media, both within academic spheres and to society at large. In order to meet our mission and provide services in our community, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Without the assistance of community-minded individuals just like you, we wouldn't be able to serve those in our community each year.


Donate to BlazeVOX Press and support our core mission—to create conversations between readers, writers, and artists. When you support BlazeVOX, you help to ensure:

• The publication of decidedly non-commercial books of poetry, prose, and select non-fiction and literary criticism;

• Innovative programming and events, such as our BlazeVOX Poetry series at Brighton Place Library;

• BlazeVOX an online journal of voice— a biannual online journal featuring poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction;

• Internships for young people every year—including aspiring writers—where they learn the ins and outs of small press publishing.

In all of our programs and publications, BlazeVOX strives to activate the role of language and literature in daily life. Our books and programs are intended to delight readers and viewers, while also stimulating questions and possibilities about the role of literature and art in society, and the culture of literature and art. As a small and efficient organization, BlazeVOX treats dollars like words: we make them do a lot of work.

We ask that you make a commitment to support our annual appeal by making a cash donation. This year our goal is $10,000, and we hope that you will be able to make a contribution. Your generosity will make a difference in our community by allowing us to continue in our work. Remember that every donation makes a difference, regardless of size.

Thank you in advance for your support!

Sincerely, Geoffrey Gatza
