Before we take off on our respective holiday ventures, I wanted to take a moment to send out this brief post. It has been my great honor to be a part of The Mantle team over the past four years. It was the first publication to publish my work on the Responsibility to Protect, and as of this past year the first publication to take a chance on me as an editor. I am forever grateful and indebted to Editor in Chief Shaun Randol and the rest of The Mantle team for the opportunity and experience.
In recent months The Mantle has officially gained its 501c3 status, which is incredibly exciting for us all. Everyone, from writers to editors, puts a great deal of effort into The Mantle and all on a volunteer basis. With our new status, our readers will be able to make tax-deductible donations, allowing us not simply to continue publishing but to branch out to new ventures. (We’ve got some exciting things planned for 2015, just you wait!!)
I so appreciate the support you have all given me over the years as friends, readers and late-night editors. I do hope you will take a moment to make even a small donation to The Mantle, helping us to keep publishing critical voices from around the world.
Thanks again for all your support, and happy holidays!!
As a reward for reading this post and hopefully donating to The Mantle, here is my favorite holiday song. You’re welcome.
And one last thing!! If you’re in the market for a new book this Christmas season, check out The Mantle’s first publication –> Gambit: Newer African Writing! It can be found on Kindle, Nook, iTunes, and of course good ol’ fashioned paperback!
