Dear Readers of the New England Theatre Geek,
We are excited to announce that the New England Theatre Geek is now a fiscally sponsored project of Fractured Atlas! Donations made to the New England Theatre Geek are now tax-deductible.
We’ve raised $869.00 so far with Fractured Atlas toward our yearly goal of $2,000. We are reaching out to ask you to consider making a donation to our project.
The New England Theatre Geek has existed under the direction of Queen Geek Kitty Drexel for nine years. During that time, Kitty has acted as editor-in-chief, and lead change within the critique and reviewing communities through arts activism while proving constructive criticism to the New England theatre community. She with staff journalists Gillian Daniels, Noe Kamelamela, Diana Lu, and Afrikah Smith are dedicated to covering the arts at a high standard within the frame of a larger cultural shift.
Journalists deserve to be paid for their work. New England Theatre Geek joined Fractured Atlas in order to pay its writers for their work. The journalists of the New England Theatre Geek have provided thoughtful, honest critique without pandering to theatres, their donors, or popular opinion on a voluntary, unpaid basis since the blog’s inception in 2010. Each donation received will ensure that the Geeks are paid for their contributions to the New England theatre landscape.
Journalists deserve to be paid a respectable living wage. Each Geek writer currently makes only $40 per 500-word article posted on the blog. This amount is an honorarium that doesn’t properly compensate writers for their time, research, or expenses. Your donation to the New England Theatre Geek will increase the honorarium paid to writers.
There are two ways to donate:
- You can donate by credit card online at the link below: https://fundraising.fracturedatlas.org/new-england-theatre-geek-articles-reviews-critiques-and-interviews/general_support
- If you prefer, you can also donate by check. Please email blognetheatregeek at gmail.com for more information.
The New England Theatre Geek is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non‐profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of the New England Theatre Geek must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” and are tax‐deductible to the extent permitted by law.
If you cannot make a donation, please share the New England Theatre Geek with your community! Strong readership numbers assist in our goal to reach a wider audience. Please follow us on our social media platforms on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
Thank you in advance for your generous support.
