THE SMOKING POET is raising funds to become an LLC, a limited liability company, so that we can begin taking in revenue from appropriate ads and, from that revenue, to pay our writers and maintain a quality site. See Submitting Ads and Giving for more information.

We appreciate your gift.

If you are interested in featuring your product, service, or website on TSP, please contact our editor-in-chief, Zinta Aistars, for pricing information and to discuss placement and format.

We are especially excited to open the doors of Our Gift Shop. All proceeds go to support our ongoing efforts to showcase the very best in literary talent. Shop, enjoy, and do good for writers who work hard to excel. It is one more way to support The Smoking Poet while enjoying a quality gift for yourself ... or a favorite writer or cigar aficionado in your life.

We hope our readers and writers will be as thrilled about this next important step in our growth as we are. We hope you will consider a gift to The Smoking Poet. Or, to become a quality advertiser on our pages.

What kind of ads will we consider? Examples include fine cigars and products of interest to cigar aficionados, and products or services that are useful to writers and artists. If you're not sure if your business, service or product are a good fit with TSP, ask! We'll be happy to tell you about our readership and traffic statistics. We will not feature any marketing that is discriminatory to gender, religion, or ethnic background.

Your gifts to The Smoking Poet will help finance:

  • LLC status, so that we can begin to operate as a business
  • Maintenance and expansion of the website
  • Investment pool from which writers and editors can be paid for their work
  • Marketing efforts to promote TSP across the Web and in southwest Michigan
  • Readings by contributing TSP authors
  • Anthologies in print of TSP's best work

Thank you for helping us to achieve this next important step in our continued growth. How heartening to know that others are as enthused and committed to supporting the arts as we are! With your gift, we intend to continue into our sixth year of providing a respected platform for the finest writers and artists to share work with a global audience.
