Paperbark is an interdisciplinary literary magazine managed and run by UMass Amherst graduate students! We publish a biannual print and digital magazine whose content is motivated by a desire to trace the connections between science, art, and the environment. We publish the work of both emerging and acclaimed voices in their respective fields, striving to highlight writers and creators who are working in conversation with environmental themes. Rooted in stewardship and creative possibility, Paperbark gathers stories of ecologies in crisis — as well as stories of life’s flourishing intricacies.
Why are we fundraising?
Paperbark is currently seeking funds — with a goal of $2500 — to publish our third, print issue. These funds will be spent printing with Marquis, a Canadian printing company which offers 100% recycled paper and ethically sourced ink. We are excited to not only be publishing work which champions the importance of environmental engagement, but also to be able to exemplify that ideology through printing an environmentally conscious magazine.
Where do I come in?
We are so thankful for any financial gift you are able to make to support this endeavor, as Paperbark relies on the generosity of those who believe in our mission and artistic goals. All donors who give over $20 will receive a copy of Issue 03.
