Writers Fund

Contrary does not operate for profit, but pays its writers using funds raised by donations. We offer our contributors $20, so:

  • Donate $20, and you can sponsor a poem or story or author in an issue. Please indicate in your message if an author inspired your donation.
  • Donate $250, and you can cover our costs for an issue.
  • Donate $1000, and you can cover our costs for a year.
  • Donate $1, and you’ve still done your part to reward beauty and art and to lift the spirits of everyone involved in Contrary.

Contrary survives entirely on donations, which after server and domain fees, go entirely to our writers. Thank you for your support!

If you ever buy anything from Amazon, you can make your Amazon.com purchases through the Contrary Writers Fund Bookshop, and Amazon will donate 4-6 percent of your purchase price to Contrary.
