Fence has in recent times eschewed cultivation of a philanthropic community. The philanthropic model of arts patronage generally perpetuates inequities. Fence writes grants, and the Board of Directors of Fence does the work of bringing in donations to Fence. Meanwhile Fence creates revenue by means of sales of our books and magazines and by attracting and inviting MEMBERSHIP.
We invite you to support Fence with your joining, which provides Fence authors your readership and in turn provides you with a community of publication. You are undeniably part of Fence. It is a little bit like a worker-owned cooperative and a little bit like a Community Supported Publication. You are paying up front so that Fence can have the security and stability to go forth and publish.
