Unlike many cultural journals, Evergreen pays all its contributors. But in recognition of the hardships so many creative types are facing just now, with readings and performances cancelled at least through the summer, it is our goal to at least double our payouts during this lean season.
Every penny of the money raised in this campaign goes directly to the writers and visual artists whose work has been commissioned for our special series on the worldwide impact of covid-19.
The Evergreen Review is ad-free and paywall-free, so your contribution has a direct impact on our ability to benefit the poets, essayists, story writers and other artists whose work fills the site.
Founded in 1957 by legendary publisher Barney Rosset, Evergreen became known as the "heartbeat of the Beats" and its inaugural issue featured writers such as Samuel Beckett, James Purdy, and Jean-Paul Sartre.

In 2017, the publication relaunched online with Dale Peck as editor-in-chief and John Oakes as its publisher. Its poetry editor is Jee Leong Koh, its art editor is Joy Garnett, and Miracle Jones is editor-at-large. Its design is by Joe Perez of Pocomeloso.
