Donate to Red Ogre Review's 2024 Chapbooks

Our 2024 Chapbook Series


In 2023, we expanded our publishing scope by adding poetry chapbooks to our catalogue of magazine issues. And with a bit of support from the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association, we published five!



Given the success of this year's series, we're planning a new chapbook series for 2024. Your funding assistance will help us make it a reality. 


Every dollar helps!


We've nailed down a system to publish books at a much lower cost than traditional publishers (and many indie publishers as well), but there are still some. Funds will be used to source and obtain rights to manuscripts, to commission book cover art, for publishing costs, for marketing expenses, and similar things.


For donations of $100 or more, we'll happily credit you as a sponsor of the 2024 series, if you'd like.


How Else Do We Use Donations?


We are ruthless about running a tight ship in terms of operating costs to keep the press humming along. Our site uses free and open source code wherever possible (in fact, I built it myself). If we think we have to pay for something, we keep digging until we find a free option. Our editors and volunteers all work for free.


As a rough estimate, we put in at least $50,000 worth of free labor over the course of a year, if that unpaid work had to be paid for via conventional employees or freelancers.


But we do have some expenses that can't be changed! For example, submission platform fees, office software subscriptions, domain name registration fees, trade organization membership dues, and similar things. And these add up.


We use donations not earmarked for specific projects to help our balance sheet break even each year and to put aside funds for future expenses. Every donation matters!


Thank you,


Matthew Bullen
