Hyena! And PB10

By The Poetry Bus

description

Our project is to raise sufficient funds to publish, print, parcel and post out copies of Fran Lock's exciting new collection of poetry, Hyena! and copies of PB10 our special tenth anniversary issue.

The money will be spent on cover design and pdf set up, printing and postage.

Collette and I have been publishing our magazine along with several poetry books for ten years.

If we get the money nothing apart from sudden global destruction can stop us.

There is no other funding source open to us. Fund it is the only gig in town. No Fund it, no books, no magazines, no hope, no future.

Thank you so much for helping us by funding or sharing our campaign on social media. We literally are nothing without you, you are the lifeblood of our magazines and books.

Working Hard!

Hello dear Funders,

Hope you are all well. We are working away on the magazine. We have sorted the running order of the poems (Oh, they are SO good!) and are gradually putting a printable pdf together. We have finisahed the second draft and sent it to the poets to check over their own poems and bios. Nobody knows their work better than the poets themselves. We want the mag, and Fran's book, to be the very best they can be.
Fran wants to add a few more poems to Hyena! So you will be getting even more knockout poetry. We will keep you updated on progress and can't wait to get these beauties to the printers.

Love,
Collette and Peadar.

BOOMTIME!

Our latest funders ,2x anonymous, plus Ellen Dillon, have pushed us over the line! 100% funded with a week to spare. Wow! A million thanks to Ellen and the anonymous people and each and every funder. You are amazing! We can't wait to get your rewards to you!

Much love,
Collette and Peadar.

One week to go!

Hello dear Funders,

A million welcomes and thank yous to our new funders, Garry Roberts, Stephen de Búrca, Lucy Holme, Warren Czapa, Emer Fallon, Brenda Conley, Curtis Lindeman, Daniel Hinds and two anonymous!

We are at 95% with a week to go. Pledges have stopped, but time is on our side. A few people have struggled with cards and addresses not being accepted, hopefully they'll try again and succeed. Keep the faith!

Love,
Collette and Peadar.




85% Funded.

Hello Dear Funders,

The response to this campaign has been incredible. We think we have more individual funders than for any other Fundit project we've done in the past. It gives us huge encouragement.

Thanks to you all and to our new funders: Siobhan Potter, Sue Finch, Ian Machen, Johnny Eaton, Stuart Flynn, Anette Skade and...Anonymous!

Of course if we don't hit 100% we get nothing, so the fat badger isn't quite singing yet. 

If you have any friends that might like these books/mags, give them a nudge, or share on social media. That would be cool!

A million thanks again,
Collette and Peadar.

A fantastic start!

Hello wonderful funders,
You have given us such a boost. It is always daunting setting sail into these fundit waters, you wonder will there not be even a breeze and you won't even leave the harbour let alone reach the other shore. But what a tailwind, we are halfway across the sea already. A terrific start. Blow winds BLOW!

Love,
Collette and Peadar.
