We work hard at Crack the Spine. We’re talking wee hours, bags under our eyes, the occasional sleep deprived psychotic break hard. And we’ve been humbled and honored over the years to see the supportive nature of the creative community. We absolutely love what we do and we want to keep doing it… pretty much forever. For the first time, we are offering the opportunity to become a member of Crack the Spine. You’ll receive our anthologies for free with membership, plus some exclusive goodies and our eternal gratitude. So check out the details below and consider signing up for yourself or gifting a membership for the lit-head in your life. Help us keep delivering the madness over method.

We get $50. Here’s what you get…

  • You’ll receive the next 4 issues of our quarterly print anthology. We’ll ship these little beauties hot off the press and straight to your door as part of your membership.That’s a year’s supply of glorious-paper-in-your-hand books. Well over 100 pages each, these print anthologies feature the best of Crack the Spine submissions. Short fiction, poetry, creative essays… all the good stuff. Cover price for a year’s worth of anthologies would run you over $55, and that’s before shipping. So yeah, this is pretty much a bargain.
  • Some exclusive goodies. Think NPR swag, without the 800-number.
  • A little something special for your birthday. Or, at the very least, a card. Because that’s what friends do.
  • The Warm-Fuzzies. Walk around with your head held high, because you’re supporting fiercely independent art. You’re helping with production costs, hosting fees, expansion plans… you’re pretty much our hero.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? So sign up already!
