GOWP Two Fundit



GOWP is a collective of young writers based in Dublin. We’ve set up this Fund it to help finance the printing, design and distribution of our second zine: GOWP Two. We are a wholly independent group and really need some extra financial help to execute this project correctly. We consider our goal to be quite modest and we would seriously appreciate any help you can offer.

GOWP is committed to publishing excellent writing by young and emerging figures in the Irish and international literary scene. By funding this project you will be supporting young artists and writers whose work deserves to be read. Independent, D.I.Y projects are the lifeblood of any artistic scene.

GOWP Two will be launched on the 22nd of January at the Martcade in Rathmines. On the night we’ll have spoken word performances, readings from the zine and visual displays. Music on the night will be provided by our friends at Sim Simma and Manma Saor. The event is BYOB and all are welcome. Details can be found on our Facebook page.

The contributions received from funders will be used to:

- Print the zine itself. The zine will be assembled (lovingly) by hand, but paper and ink cost quite a lot and we want to do things right. We feel strongly that print media is valuable and worth supporting, especially in this age dominated by the digital sphere. By funding us you will be helping to bring a cultural object into existence. We think this is pretty special.

- Design the issue. This issue of our zine will pay particular attention to design and layout. Your pledge will help us make this issue of our zine an aesthetic as well as a literary delight. We have some wonderful young artists working with us who deserve to be compensated for materials and time.

-To hold a great launch for the issue, to which everyone is invited. We already have a wonderful location for our launch, but it needs to be paid for. Funders will also help us promote the night by allowing us to commission a poster for the launch. The launch has much more to offer than just a chance to grab a copy of the zine. On the night there'll be music, spoken word performances and visual art displays. It'll be a lot of fun and you'll be able to collect your Fund it rewards on the night. (For those who can't make it to the launch, there rewards will be posted to them.)

We really believe in this project and need your help to do it right.

GOWP Two will feature:

- Interviews with novelist Rob Doyle and poet Dimitra Xidous
- Excellent new fiction
- New poetry from Maryam Ali, Matt Prater and others
- Art from some of Ireland’s most promising young artists
- And much, much more.

GOWP Two is edited by Christian Cooney, Tadhg Hoey and Maryam Ali.
