In an effort to help offset the systematic inequality and white privilege in the literary industry, during the month of May, former Literary Mama editor-in-chief Amanda Jaros will offer editorial feedback to people who donate to nonprofit organizations in the literary arts that support people traditionally underrepresented or marginalized, or that support literacy and literature for children.
Donate $25 dollars and receive feedback on up to 1,000 words. Donate $75 or more and receive feedback on up to 4,000 words.
To participate, email LMinfo@literarymama.com with a clear photo or screenshot of the receipt in the body of the email. No attachments will be opened.
When the receipt is received, you will get an email asking to send your writing. Please send only fiction or nonfiction; no poetry at this time. Anyone may participate.
Response time for feedback depends on how many submissions are received.
