The $100 off art sale for the back to school fundraiser for The Ekphrastic Review finished yesterday. Our goal was to sell 20 square foot paintings at $150 (Canadian dollars, free shipping). We fell a bit short of that, selling 1 piece. Nonetheless, I am still most grateful to that person for her support. We also have one new Patreon subscriber and a few PayPal gifts, for which I am so thankful.
The Ekphrastic Review is dear to my heart and I intend to continue to showcase the poetry and prose of talented writers like you, and develop the spectrum and quality of ekphrastic creativity. As I intend to continue my rejection of subscription or submission fees, and my refusal to sully the writers' work with ugly ads or click bait, I will continue looking for ways to monetize this project. My expectation is not to become rich and I understand that most of my work here will always be volunteer hours, and I am committed to the long haul with that understanding. I do hope that I will be able to sell some art to help support the time I put in here and the promotion and development of this journal, and web fees, etc.
With this in mind, I hope you will endure with a smile some occasional "ads" with me sharing some artwork in hopes someone might wish to put in on their wall.
