Support us on Patreon

We publish Backchannels to create space for and connect people through original art and writing as a labor of love. Help us share work with more people (and keep the lights on): join the Backchannels community and support us on our new Patreon page. For as low as $2/month you’ll help us keep submissions free, maintain the website, and respond personally to our submitters including in-depth feedback when possible. You’ll get plenty of perks (let us know if there’s something you’d like that we’re not offering!) and our undying gratitude.

We LOVE Our Contributors!

We are thrilled to spotlight our first Patreon supporter, Shelly Reid Thieman. We rely on our contributors to make Backchannels happen! Your literary and visual works and your monetary support allow us to offer free submissions, online publications available to all, and help us get closer to our goal of paying our writers and artists. Join Shelly and help us grow this community of artists and writers on Patreon.
