Dear Readers,

New Contrast has, not for the first time in its sixty-two years history, once again hit a financial squeeze: loss of institutional donations, sharp increases in printing costs, and declining subscriptions. To avoid the possible discontinuation of New Contrast we are urgently appealing to you for help in one or both of the following ways. Firstly, purchase an annual subscription for yourself or someone else by the process of buying a subscription.

Secondly, please make a donation directly  by clicking the ‘Donate’ button. New Contrast has been the leading literary journal in South Africa for six decades, and with your help, we commit to ensuring it remains so for decades to come. Those who donate R 2 000 or more per year will receive a free digital subscription to our journal, and be recognised by having their names published as PATRONS, unless they prefer anonymity.
