The Disappointed Housewife is delighted to announce our first payment to writers thanks to the generosity of the readers.
Last month I created a “starving artists” fund, to which readers can make donations via PayPal. A convenient “donate” button is located in the sidebar to the right. And since the fund’s creation, we’ve collected a cool one hundred dollars.
For this first disbursement, it makes sense to spread the wealth rather than to concentrate it, so I’m paying out $10 to ten different writers whose work in The Housewife has been getting plenty of positive attention. The group includes five poets, four fiction writers, and two creators of “Faux Forms & Genres.” In singling them out, I’m not holding their work above that of other contributors but instead attempting to highlight what The Housewife is all about — unusual approaches, unique use of language, and the always-appreciated je ne sais quoi.
Here are the ten, with links to their contributions, and I hope they each find something interesting to buy with their sawbuck:
FAUX FORMS & GENRES
Many thanks to the individual readers who kicked in some dough, and I look forward to seeing the payment fund grow so we can pay our writers, ultimately, for each work that’s accepted.
