support - our mission, donate to Calque

At Calque we aim at publishing small editions of poetry, illustrated books, novellas, pamphlets, and, occasionally, multi-author anthologies. We collaborate with artists, translators and multi-lingual and bilingual writers. We believe in translation as a tool that helps us build bridges between people and places, and work on the intersectionality of mixing craft with the written word.

Publishing limited and print-on-demand editions help us be kind to the environment. Our publishing model is sustainable and stresses building a community over growth. We are at present developing two more collections, Calque Handmade and Calque Cartonera, as part of our ongoing process of incorporating upcycling and sustainable practices into publishing. 

If you would like to contribute with our project, please do so by buying, when possible, from our online shop: that helps us directly. 

Making a direct donation

You can also make a one-off direct donation to our project through PayPal. That will help us keep producing beautiful books and pamphlets:

Thank you for your support.
