Hello, fellow Sonderers, and welcome to our Patreon.

The Sonder Review is a publication of short fiction, creative nonfiction and visual art. Our magazine lives both online and in print and is based in Upstate, New York.

We believe in language. Words raw and shuddering and unabashed. Prose which is spare and piercing, delicately and deliberately crafted. We believe in storytelling that is innovative and daring, precise and oddly angled. Writing which shows us the bizarre but also, always, the resounding throb of humanity. We want fresh voices; words which must be heard.

And we believe in you, our readers and contributors and friends. Sonder is about inclusivity, about collaboration and community. And so we hope to build something special out of this journal, to foster conversations and help each other to grow as both readers and writers of magnificent prose. But for that, we need your help.

Not to mention, all of those little annoying managerial parts of running a lit mag and small press (printing, web hosting, advertisement, etc) do, unfortunately, cost money… so we’re asking you, our beloved readers, to help us out a little bit at a time with our Patreon Subscription. Trust us, we will definitely make it worth your time; we are so excited to bring these perks to you, and we hope you enjoy them as much we enjoy making them.

We are so, so happy to be able to start this, the newest chapter in our little Sonder community. Come join us, won't you?

The Sonder Review
$1 of $1,000 per month
We know it may be a long way off, but we believe that when we've reached this $1,000 per month goal, we will have achieved a truly sustainable state with both the Journal and the Press. Because the future is mysterious and amorphous, none of us can predict precisely what will come between now and our goal, but we are confident that it will be beautiful.
And hey, when we hit that goal, we will definitely make it worth your while.
