As NightBallet Press transitions from a numbingly cold 2017 into a brighter, and Oh-We-SO-Hope-Warmer, 2018, we give gratitude, from the bottom of our hearts, to the awesome writers who trust us with their words, the artists and photographers who give us permission to use their stunningly beautiful work, the supportive hosts who offer venues and opportunities for our poets to have their physical voices heard, the bookstores and libraries who offer our poets the opportunities to have their literary voices heard, the lifetime subscribers who invested in us from the beginning, the thoughtful angels who surprise us with donations throughout the year, two very special local businesses: Elyria Print Shop and Hollo's Papercraft, and the readers like YOU, who continue to believe in us and the editing/publishing we do. You have given us six-going-on-seven wonderful years, with the promise of much more to come.
We are truly grateful to the Wingman Club members, those who annually subscribe to our books and who continue to sustain us by offering encouragement and financial assistance to this small, independent, hands-on, poetry-and-art book press. This generosity is much appreciated.
As we move into 2018, we invite you to fly with us as a member of this special club. A wingman is described as one who supports a friend or associate. We offer membership to the Wingman Club in the form of a one-year subscription to NightBallet Press.
This means you, for fifty dollars, will receive every book published by the press between September 2017 and September 2018, with a guaranteed minimum of ten titles, many of them full-length collections. The total worth of this season's books is estimated to exceed one hundred dollars. This subscription offers an additional bonus: no charge for postage! That's a huge savings, in addition to the incredibly low cost of a subscription.
Please note: you will receive all the books published between September 2017 and September 2018, no matter what month you join the club. The first shipment contains all the books published up to the date of joining.
NightBallet Press is founded on the principal that a poet's work belongs to the poet, and that these wonderful words deserve to be presented as a package of beauty. We respect the art and craft of poetry and we strive to give it excellence, in every aspect of our publishing. NightBallet Press exists and produces without grants or endowments, and we do not take money from our poets for the production of their books. Expenses are out-of-pocket for the publisher.
Being a Wingman means you would fly alongside this publisher as she creates new books for poets across the United States. Your subscription money would be an investment in the poets themselves; every penny would go toward the ink, cardstock, paper, staples, envelopes, packing tape, and other printing needs that make NightBallet publication possible.
Feel the wind beneath your wings this New Year and join NightBallet Press' Wingman Club...subscribe, and become a Wingman today!
And now, NightBallet Press celebrates life and offers all of you love, light, and best wishes for a very Happy New Year! Bring on the bubbly! We have a fresh new year to celebrate!
