Nabilleracannot exist without your donation!
Nabillerais one of the few literary journals that introduce contemporary Korean literature in English. Our hope is to provide a bigger and fuller picture of Korean literature by including poems, stories, and critics written by young and emerging writers. In addition, we are planning to include a section where subscribers may share their perspectives, ranging from a letter to a writer to opinions related to contemporary Korean literature.
While Nabillerais a web-based quarterly, maintaining a literary journal costs a considerable amount of money. To keep the magazine free while compensating the writers, we need your help. The following is the breakdown of the budget per issue:
10 poems (5/poet)*
2 short stories (1/novelist)*
4 written interviews with writers (1/writer)
Website hosting fee (per year)
20,000 KRW * 10 = 200,000 KRW (177.8 USD as of 05/30/2017)IN OTHER WORDS, NABILLERACAN PUBLISH
150,000 KRW * 2 = 300,000 KRW (266.7 USD as of 05/30/2017)
20,000 KRW * 4 = 80,000 KRW (77.1 USD as of 05/30/2017)
TOTAL PER ISSUE: appx. 650 USD

*Nabillerapublishes novels and poems that have been already published in Korean, so the rate for manuscripts is set lower than the usual compensation for the newly published manuscripts.
**includes tax, shifting exchange rate, wire transfer fee, and fee collected by the fundraising website. Any leftover amount will roll over into the following issue.
Any amount of money—as little as $5 or $10 dollars—will help contemporary Korean literature become more visible in the English and global literary market.
