A few weeks ago, we featured Poets for Living Waters as our Website of the Week because of how excited we were about writers doing something to contribute to the relief effort in the gulf following the massive BP oil spill. Now Gulf Coast - the literary journal published out of the University of Houston - is doing their part to make a positive contribution. Starting now, Gulf Coast will be donating all subscription proceeds above production costs (they say it'll be about $6 of the $16 it costs to subscribe) to Gulf Restoration Network, an organization that is "committed to uniting and empowering people to protect and restore the natural resources of the Gulf Region for future generations."
And if good will isn't enough of an incentive for you, Gulf Coast has upped the ante and will include a free back issue for all new and renewing susbcribers. Head over to Gulf Coast's Subscription Page and enter in the donation code "GLF" into the coupon code box to get your free back issue. It's a triple win: YOU get a subscription to one of the best literary journals in the country + a copy of one of their previous issues + the feeling of knowing you are doing something to help out with the relief effort. Who could say no to that?
