Tip Jar

Hey! Thanks for even clicking over to this page!

I really, really hate to ask for money, but I hate even more that I’m not paying any of these enormously talented writers, artists, or myself. Right now, your dollars will go to the money I’ve already spent getting Full Grown People up and running. After that, I want to build enough capital to start paying the people who make this happen.

Eventually FGP will have ads (good ones! relevant ones!), but as every editor knows, the real heart of any publication is the relationship between the writers and the readers. If you love the essays these writers donated, I’d be thrilled if you’d consider donating to Full Grown People. It’s not a non-profit, so you get squat in terms of tax benefits, but you will be able to rightly refer to yourself as A Patron of the Arts.

Your Busking Editor,
Jennifer Niesslein

  1. I love your work and I am so glad you are taking on this project! I love your writers, especially Catherine Newman (when you announced that Brain, Child was wrapping up, I sobbed and then read her entire Baby Center column – all four years worth – in big gulp). Anyway, I would love to contribute, but my credit card billing address is in Canada and the system doesn’t seem to like that (I choose Canada as a country, but then it still only offers me states to choose from, not the provinces). How can we get around this? Can I send you cheque? That I can arrange in US funds. Thank you again, I really really love the work you are doing.

  2. Oh, Melanie, I can’t thank you enough. I’m so lucky to get to work with these writers and artists, some of them again. Mind sending me an email? It’s jennifer AT [the site name you’re looking at]. xo

  3. I am so glad to have stumbled on this site. I love reading the pieces that come in the email. Just wanted to say thanks and keep up the good work!

  4. I was referred to your page by Marlene Cullen of Petaluma. I am intrigued. However, I tried three times to buy your anthology. Each time the reply was that “North Carolina” (which I picked off the list) was not a valid state! The state seemed to work fine in the shipping address. In any case, I was not able to purchase your anthology. Just thought you’d like to know.
