As a nonprofit literary arts organization, we are grateful to you--our friends, contributors, fellow publishers, and readers--for all of the support you provide. Alongside local donors, foundations, and granting organizations, our readers provide much of the funding that allows us to produce our biannual journal and GC Online. We strive to take no gifts for granted and are grateful for any amount our readers, subscribers, and site visitors can give. No gift is too small, as any donation to Gulf Coast helps us pay authors at all stages of their careers and to produce one of the finest student-run journals in the country. We hope you will feel, as we do, that a donation to Gulf Coast is well spent.
