Effort to help Ukrainian writers and their families

From Dzanc Books and Disquiet:

The staff of Dzanc Books and Disquiet have been watching the Russian invasion of Ukraine with horror. Like many, we’re trying to find small ways to help. We’ve secured a donation of $50,000 USD that we’ll be directing to individual Ukrainian writers and their families to help them get to safety. We can also provide support in relocating to the US or Portugal for writers and their families who wish to explore those options. Ukrainian writers and their families wishing to access these funds may contact us directly at ilp.lisbon@gmail.com. (Donors wishing to further support these initiatives may make contributions at this link.) Additionally, all proceeds from sales of Dzanc books for the month of March will be donated 100% to Ukraine humanitarian efforts. The Disquiet International Literary Program annually brings together writers from around the world in Lisbon, Portugal, for a two-week festival of workshops, lectures, readings, and literary cultural exchange. Dzanc Books was created in 2006 to advance great writing and to impact communities in the US and around the world.
