Don’t abandon us.


Abandon Journal is an independent, all-volunteer literary experiment that is free to readers, free for submissions, and pays for work.

If you believe in our mission and would like to support us, a donation in any amount would be a huge help and we’ll be eternally grateful. All donations will go to our operating expenses and paying writers more, and not to supporting our many vices.

If you’ve come here for a “tip jar submission,” please feel free to let us know in your cover letter. Please note that while we appreciate any support, a “tip” does not favor your submission in any way.
