Thank You

We are very grateful to the many dedicated individuals who have contributed as faculty or organizers to the events that led to our Association: the Aboriginal Editors Circle and the Indigenous Editors Circle. These gatherings have been the result of generations of hard work on behalf of Indigenous storytellers and we are honoured to continue this legacy.

We would like to thank our partners Simon Fraser University (especially the Publishing department) and the Association of Canadian Publishers for your ongoing and committed substantive support in the form of many hours of volunteer time.

A number of individual volunteers who are unaffiliated are also vital to our work. Thank you for the love and support you give.

GoFundMe donors

We are so grateful that our GoFundMe campaign allowed us to hold our February 2020 Strategic Planning Gathering just before COVID-19 made such gatherings impossible. We occasionally hear from people who reach out and want to support, and so the GoFundMe remains active in order to respond to these occasional generous offers.

We are very grateful to each individual and every organization who supported us by donating to our GoFundMe donation drive.

We extend our gratitude to the following organizations:

  • Annick Press
  • Arc Poetry
  • Association of Canadian Publishers
  • Brush Education
  • Cree Literacy Network
  • Fernwood Publishing
  • Invisible Books
  • Metonymy Press
  • Second Story
  • Simon Fraser University
  • The Writers’ Union of Canada
  • Wilfrid Laurier University Press

(If you are an individual who donated on behalf of an organization but don’t see the organization’s name listed here, please contact us and we will add it!)
