PUBSLUSH Press is a new full service publishing platform that links writers with readers, and literature with literacy.  It works by authors uploading samples of their work to their website and then users read, share, and support what they’d like to see published.For every book they sell, they donate a book to a child in need, creating a full circle of giving.

Congrats to NYWC Workshop leader Sojourner Walker Williams on the birth of her son Ohm Nathaniel Williams!
