CALYX Inc. is a non-profit press with a 501 C(3) status. All donations are tax deductible. Like other non-profit arts organizations—the opera, the ballet, the symphony, the theater—CALYX is not able to  produce enough revenue from sales to cover costs of production. CALYX is committed to publishing work that would not be published by commercial presses, and to genres that are not best-sellers in the marketplace. We have a commitment to cutting-edge literature and the discovery of unknown authors. We are often the first publisher of an author’s work. And we produce our publications on acid-free paper and in elegant formats for long life. We keep our books in print so that women’s literature is not lost. These are expensive commitments for a small press.

To meet the expenses involved with production we depend on the generosity of individual donors as well as generous grant support from private, federal and state foundations to support the publication of women’s art and literature.

You can ensure that CALYX is there at the critical moment when a writer needs encouragement by making a tax-deductible gift to CALYX. When Molly Gloss’s first short story, “The Doe,” was accepted by CALYX Journal in 1981, it was her first publication. This recognition was instrumental for her identity as a writer. She went on to publish the acclaimed novels Jump-Off Creek, The Dazzle of Day, and Wild Life, and has since been recognized with the prestigious Whiting Award.
