To ease some of our imminent growing pains, we are hoping to raise $10,000 through new and returning subscribers, merchandise sales, and donations by September 30, 2018 to help keep some of our new projects afloat and free or financially accessible to all, including the Growing Room literary festival, Indigenous Brilliance reading series, our new online response-poem series, Turtle Island Responds, and our two podcasts, Lit Mag Love and Fainting Couch Feminists. These projects and the Roomies who spearhead them are important to us, and your help will make sure they are able to continue doing this work.
As a small, independent literary organization that has operated for over forty years on a shoestring budget, passion, and volunteer labour, every subscription is vital to our existence. We’re hoping to raise at least $5,000 from new (or renewing) subscribers by September 30, 2017.

Room is one of a handful of Canadian literary magazines that is not attached to or administered by an educational institution. It’s a magazine run solely by volunteers, and as our lives and interests change, the members come and go.
