{ McSweeney’s Kickstarter }

May 5, 2015 § Leave a comment

McSweeney’s started a $150,000 Kickstarter campaign, and though it’s not obvious why the need you to give them money, they do offer a nice package of perks along the way (a perk of being a well-established publishing personality). Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Ben Greenman writing a fake celebrity musical about crowdfunding that incorporates your name (for $50).
  • Six all-new issues of The Believer (for $70).
  • An invite-only summer party at Green Apple Books on the Park in San Francisco (for $100).

And to be fair, they are talking about updating websites, the costs of podcasts and magazines, etc. But hey, it’s also a nice 60-day storefront, so go check it out!

(And stay tuned for my very own crowdfunding pitch soon!)
