Sponsor a piece (or number of pieces) so that we can publish a piece EVERY DAY for the first 2 weeks of 2019, from January 1st through January 14th.

If you sponsor a piece (or number of pieces), you’ll get your name listed alongside the publication online as a sponsor forever. You’ll also be helping us raise money for our upcoming publications, including upcoming print publications. These funds will also help us stay financially secure as we look for new work to publish after we’re cleaned out. Likely Red Press has been a paying market since we’ve started. We’re very proud of that.

Sponsor A Piece

At $5 a piece, sponsor any number of 14 pieces for January 2019. Your name will be listed alongside the work online and you’ll be helping secure funds for our future publications.




Here’s the fun part. Check out the following list of pieces. We will slowly add more details about each piece over time as we get more funds, as well as the number of sponsors for each. If you’d like to sponsor a specific piece, email us at editor@likelyred.com. If not, we’ll divide and disperse sponsors as evenly as possible.
