This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at:
The European Review of Books will be a new magazine—a modern république des lettres—in English and in a writer’s own tongue, for writing that elevates and writing that revels & romps. In print three times a year, online every week.
Great writing about books—and arts, ideas, science, jokes, the high and the low, come what may. We emerge from books because we are committed to what a book represents: a capsule, a human record, aimed at both the present and the future.
We want to view, and view again. The “review” has been reduced to decoration, entertainment, tip. How dreadful are “3 stars”, or 4, or even 5! We want the brilliant essay: enemy of the platitude, antidote to the measly opinion, avenue to the arcane, the profane, the grand. The writing you want to read, and read again.
European, to us, is an incantation, for there are a thousand Europes, and we are already living in them: the common Europe, the migrant’s Europe, the tourist’s Europe, the refugee’s Europe, the postcolonial Europe, the Schengen Europe, the Europe with euros and the Europe without euros, the Europe of Eurovision, the pre-national Europe, the post-national Europe, perhaps the post-European Europe.
As of May 28th, this project has raised $59,000 of their $96,327 goal. This project has 22 days left to raise the $96,327 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $33, you will get a 12 month digital subscription. For a pledge of $61, you will get the first print edition plus 12 month digital subscription.
