Crowd funding for Dusk – the T-shirts

Everyone loves a t-shirt, well most people do. We are particularly proud of our latest designs available over on our rejuvenated Crowd Fund

Dusk T-shirt

or for £15 plus postage, our #Arachne5 T, featuring all 18 of our books so far, arranged into a no-nonsense ‘5‘.

Both these T shirts come up a little small compared to your average T, so order a size larger than normal to be on the safe size. Black in S-XXL, White in S-XXXL

Dusk Crowd Fund nearing its end

A little recap…

We have a lovely idea: A Wave of words across the UK, like a murmuration of starlings, at Dusk, on the shortest day of the year.

We have 12 sites: Ellon (near Aberdeen), Inverness, Carlisle, Lancaster, Rossendale, Anglesey, Birmingham, Nottingham, Greenwich, Bristol, Warkleigh (near Barnstaple), Redruth.

We have a few stories, a couple of songs, and lots of poems already (your deadline is just over a month away but we are getting twitchy, SUBMIT NOW!)

And not enough money. Our Crowd fund expired on the 3rd with out making its target so we shoved it back up with a revised (lower) target and shorter deadline, and will you look at that! almost there already, but we still need help! SPREAD THE WORD please!!!.

It would be magnificent to see people waking up to the cornucopia of delights we have on offer and helping us hit our target – unlikely, but magnificent.

Here’s a quick reminder of what’s on offer trundle over to Kickstarter to find out more, but hurry!  You only have until 3pm on Wednesday 18th October. (There’s more on offer, but not everything translates to visuals!)

Crowd funding treat – mug

If you were perhaps to feel inclined to support our crowd fund, one of the MANY delights awaiting you for a modest £10 is this mug that celebrates our 5th anniversary, and features every book we’ve published so far.

To help us publish more, and run more events, (on this occasion Dusk, the 4th Solstice Shorts Festival) we from time to time ask the Arts Council for help, and they (quite rightly) ask us to match fund, so we crowd fund.

We’d sooner be getting on with the process of choosing and publishing lovely books, but the funding is made bearable by the lovely ideas our authors come up with, and the lovely people who help us out. join in!

Crowd funding. I kind of hate it. Asking people for money goes against the grain.  Having to keep on about it so people don’t forget. It is painful.

Plug. Plug. Plug.

Be that as it may, here I go again, with some of our designs that you can wear.
