This time last year, we asked for your support to continue our work into 2022, and thanks to your donations we’ve been able to put out two new issues, continue our weekly online edition and run both our Short Story and Poet’s Prizes, as well as bring back our programme of live events.
In 2022 alone, we’ve worked with a range of brilliant cultural figures, including Ocean Vuong, Bani Abidi, Siri Hustvedt, Lubaina Himid, Maria Stepanova and Eugene Ostashevsky, Valzyhna Mort, Julia Armfield, Vladimir Sorokin translated by Max Lawton, Kate Zambreno, Susanna Moore, and Polly Barton.
As you know, over the years we have published a diverse mixture of emerging and established artists and writers side by side. Remember Nobel Prize-winning author Olga Tokarczuk’s short fiction ‘Wisteria’, translated by Antonia Lloyd-Jones? Brian Dillon’s essay on charisma? Fernanda Melchor’s exploration of contemporary Mexico? Lauren Elkin’s interview with Annie Ernaux? Jennifer Hodgson and Patricia Waugh’s ‘On the Exaggerated Reports of a Decline in British Fiction’? Virginie Despentes’s blistering take-down of the Académie des César, translated by Frank Wynne? Johanna Hedva’s hagiography of Nine Inch Nails? Meena Kandasamy’s extraordinary essay on writing, trauma and the fate of women Tamil Tigers? Juliet Jacques’s reckoning with the films of Adam Curtis? Sally Rooney’s short story ‘At the Clinic‘? Deborah Levy’s ‘Weeping Machines‘, the starting point for her ‘living autobiography‘ series? Poetry by Holly Pester, Jen Calleja, Sarah Howe, A K Blakemore and John Ashbery? Our many beautiful covers, designed by artists including Allison Katz, Toyin Ojih Odutola and Anthea Hamilton?
Since its inception, The White Review has depended upon the support of its readers. Now, more than ever, we need your help to continue our work.
The current political and economic climate poses an existential threat to small charities, independent magazines and publishers like us. With the UK government overseeing brutal cuts to the arts, and competition for public funding more intense than ever, many arts organisations still reeling from the effects of COVID-19 and Brexit are facing an uncertain future.
If you can, please consider donating to The White Review. Your help can secure the future of the magazine, enabling us to become even more ambitious. The White Review is a registered charity (Charity Number: 1148690). All donations are tax deductible.
As a thank you for your support, we are offering a set of rewards, from issues and book bundles to manuscript consultations. We’re grateful for your contribution. We couldn’t do this without you!
