Help Local "Literary Little Guys" Concisely Magazine

You have nine days left to support Chicago literary publication Concisely Magazine via Help raise $300 to publish issue #4: a pledge of $10 gets you the next print issue, a collection of eight stories each under 500 words (with absolutely no advertisements), and a plethora of genuine thank yous. Spare $20 and you'll receive a full year's subscription or 4 issues. As of today, the "little guys" have met just over 50% of their goal. So help if you can, all you literary philanthropists. See? It takes less than 100 words to ask!
