FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 7, 2016
Atelier26 Books is proud to announce that it is the recipient of a $2,000 Small Arts & Culture Grant from The Oregon Community Foundation. The grant will support the publication of a new work of literature slated for release in 2017.
“This material support from the Oregon Community Foundation is extremely meaningful,“ said Publisher M. Allen Cunningham. “One of my core beliefs about publishing is that quality books are far more than consumable goods, and shared reading experiences can foster community and cultural vitality. It is thanks to grants like this and generous donations from readers that Atelier26 is able to bring unconventionally beautiful and resonant works to the public. I hope that our recognition by the Oregon Community Foundation will encourage generous individuals to consider us for their year-end giving.” Cunningham notes that Atelier26 always accepts tax-deductible donations of any size through its website.
Atelier26 is an independent publisher in Portland, Oregon that exists to demonstrate the powers and possibilities of literature through beautifully designed and expressive books that get people listening, talking, and exchanging ideas. Our recent release, People Like You by Margaret Malone, was named a 2016 PEN/Hemingway Award Finalist for Debut Fiction and was awarded the Balcones Fiction Prize.
