How You Can Support Our Work

Now, more than ever, our culture needs critical voices, and we need your help. Founded in 1974, the National Book Critics Circle supports and encourages the art and craft of literary criticism. Your donation will support our Awards and Fellowships fund, our Emerging Critics Fellowships, our member services, and continuing outreach to aspiring and working book reviewers across the nation. All donors receive our weekly newsletter, Critical Notes. The National Book Critics Circle is a 501c(3) nonprofit.
