Cosmonauts Avenue is an online literary journal run by badass women dedicated to elevating and amplifying underrepresented voices. For over two years, we have published monthly issues featuring poetry, fiction, essays, interviews, and more, from writers around the world, in English and in translation. We have created a space defined by resistance and care.

Art is life, but it is also work. Our contests pay for winners, judges, website and Submittable fees, but we want to be able to compensate our swoon worthy contributors for all of the hard work they do – the lives they share with us. Cosmonauts Avenue is a labor of love staffed by volunteer editors, all of whom work multiple jobs and receive no income from working on this journal. We want to ensure that writing can be a sustainable endeavor, that our contributors are paid for their hard work. But in order to do so, we need to reach out to a larger community and ask for help to achieve this goal. No matter how small a donation, it makes a huge impact on our ability to pay contributors.

We are very grateful to our dedicated readers, and we hope you’ll be able to support us in our endeavour to pay for the work we publish. If you can’t donate, we’d love it if you could share this on your social media and help us spread the campaign to ensure we can reach this goal!

xoxoxoxoxo we love you sososososo much,

Cosmonauts Avenue
