The Quillective Project's mission is to turn the power of the written word into an instrument of compassion, hope, and generosity by putting that power directly in the hands of organizations that share our principles. To this end, anthologies are published each year, with proceeds going to a selected animal welfare organisation. This year's beneficiary is the Dallas Humane Society's no-kill shelter, Dog & Kitty City.
The 2013 Quillective Project is Four Paws, a poetry anthology featuring bestselling authors Scott Morgan, Ben Ditmars, Amber Jerome~Norrgard and Robert Zimmermann, with a "fourward" by Russell Blake.
Unlike many fund-raising events, the Quillective Project's books are unusual in that, rather than the more usual "10% of profits" or similar, 100% of all proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the beneficiary. This is made possible because the people who have worked to produce this edition, and those contributors, have all done so without remuneration. No hidden costs, no gala lunches for socialites, no swallowing up of donations in "administrative expenses". Your purchase of this book does make a difference. Buy some for your friends as well! It's not expensive.
The book goes live on February 24th, 2013 on Amazon.com. Read more about the Quillective Project here: http://quillectiveproject.org
