Wall of Donors






Thanks to the contributions of generous donors like you, Miracle Monocle has been empowered to make needed enhancements to its publishing platform, fund a larger-scale literary competition in recognition of emerging talents, and expand the journal’s reach. This year, Miracle Monocle hosted its first Open Mic reading; the staff also enjoyed a letterpress workshop with Hound Dog Presswe performed selections from previous issues of the journal for a visiting fine arts group, we created Miracle Monocle-branded attire together, and we tabled at various local literary events. By putting your faith in our our ability to make an impact on the national stage, you have helped to secure Louisville’s status as an emerging incubator of distinctive literary publishing and have helped student editors find paths to career realization. Your gifts have had a tremendous impact on our growth as a truly unique—and vivacious—literary community. We thank you for joining us on this ambitious adventure.
