WNHP: grant winner

We are so excited. Thanks entirely to Council of Literary Magazines and Presses for having grant money set aside exclusively for zines and chapbooks.  WNHP has just won it's first ever grant, made possible through New York State Council on the Arts.

I have to say that, when I saw the application, and the words budget and deadline and criteria, I was going to bail. But CLMP encouraged me, and it's good that they did, because, we were the only chapbook to apply so we got a double-sized grant.  How's that for a bright sunny result, which is the opposite of the WNHP life outlook?

While grant money cannot go towards printing costs, it sure can motivate us to decide to put out the next issue super early.  More on that to come, soon!.
