We started as a group of students at the Evergreen State College. With very little in the way of academic publishing through our school, and no paid writing jobs in the area we decided to start our own publication. Our goal is to focus on publishing any and all work of those who want their work published. We seek writers who stand outside of the traditional realm of academia and will form a group that spans the spectrum of creative thought. We are determined to compensate contributing authors, not with ‘experience’ not with ‘visibility’ but with money. We are committed to directing 90% of purchase and donation profit to our contributing authors. Here at Stir. we feel that literacy education is key to fostering the next generation of readers and writers in a time when now more than ever we need people to write. We will donate the remaining 10%-along with the editors share-to the Children's Literacy Initiative. We hope that you'll join us in this little experiment to stand as a beacon for readers and writers to go forth and create. If you feel that your writing must be read, we always have a blank page for you.
We hope you enjoy what we have made here.
