Your purchase of a Symbolic Book will fund

The Arnie Achtman Award

 

Current Campaign Donations: $295.00

 

     
Why?

Every year Life Rattle encounters exceptional new writers. Some of these writers have created a substantial body of work that deserves the broader audience publication will provide.

The cost of publishing an individual collection is prohibitive for a non-profit collective.

Donations made through the purchase of a "symbolic book" helps to fund the publication
of a worthy collection every year.

 

Our fundraising goal of $2,500 for each award
will meet these publishing expenses:

Author Royalty Advance - $500
First Run Printing - $500
Editing & Proofreading - $1500

All other expenses will be funded by Life Rattle.

 

 

The Details

  • This "symbolic book" available for purchase is not a "real" book - it is just our way of making it easy for you to donate through PayPal.

  • Life Rattle is not a registered charity. We are unable to issue a tax receipt for your donation.

  • All donations will be listed on our website. If you prefer to remain anonymous, please make note of that in the "add special instructions to the seller" field at the bottom of the PayPal page.

  • Each symbolic book costs $20 (cdn). You can purchase as many symbolic books as you like. In fact, there are perks for making a larger donation.

    Donate $60 (3 symbolic books) and we'll send you one "real" book: a copy of the Arnie Achtman Award publication that you helped to fund!

    Donate $100 (5 symbolic books) and we'll send you two "real" books: a copy of the Arnie Achtman Award publication that you helped to fund and a second Life Rattle publication!
