Hey! We are a university-level publishing class, working to publish Canadian author Stan Rogal's newest collection of short stories. This is a 4th year university class in the Professional Writing Program - Book Stream. Everyone involved is a student looking to enter the publishing field. As part of our program, we receive a manuscript from an author and manage every aspect of publishing from raw manuscript to fully printed book, under the universities publishing label: Leaping Lion Books. This includes student-run departments such as editing, production, design, marketting, rights and permissions, and web design. 

As you may imagine, this is a very complicated process, and the costs of publishing a book are quite heavy. While we are given a budget to work with, we are encouraged to attempt to raise additional funds which will go towards production, the design of the book, marketing the book, and other costs and events such as the book launch to help improve the overall end product. We've created this campaign to help raise funds for the publication of our current book. 

By donating you are not only contributing to the Canadian literary landscape by helping publish original content by a Canadian author into the market; but you are contributing to our education and experience, so that we can hopefully continue to bring more Canadian writing talent into the world through our future careers. Thank you for your time. 

Any amount you choose to donate is greatly appreciated by all thirty of our hardworking students, for making our job just that much easier.
