Support Wolfman Books!

You can now sign up to be a sustaining supporter of Wolfman Books! What does that mean? It means you can sign up to help us host so many free events, publish and pay writers, and create vital community art space to do a ton more!

2018 was our biggest year yet! Seriously, we put out more publications (7), published more writers and artists (70), hosted more events (over 100!), hired more employees (6), lengthened our hours, and hopefully made a bigger impact (in your lives!) than we ever have since we opened in 2014. We took Oakland based artists to book fairs in NYC, Los Angeles, and SF. We partnered with LitQuake, with Guerrero Gallery, Oakland Summer School, Unity & Lower Grand Radio, SF State Poetry Center, YBCA, and so many more peeps. A lot of it was free. We paid all of our contributors. Our publications were always affordable. We said YES to (almost) everything!

What are we working on for next year? Tons of things! We are publishing four more issues of New Life Quarterly; have books coming out about womyn's health and art criticism and POC womyn of color in the non-profit industry by Caren Beilin, Anne Lesley Selcer, Maya Gomez & Vreni-Michelini Castillo, among others; are releasing the next installment from The Black Aesthetic Collective; are making a print project with the CTRL+SHFT Collective; plus a bunch more. We have a 2019 Community Arts grant from the City of Oakland! We have events planned all over the city, the Bay, and the country, and promise to be as open as ever to hosting free events for all of your vibrant, diverse, and absolutely essential art communities.

If Wolfman is important to your life and you believe in what we're doing and you want to see more free events and more pop-ups and more rad publications and community events and weird music shows once in a while and film screenings and classes and literally a zillion other things, consider donating on a regular basis!
