Milkweed Membership

Milkweed Editions
Membership

In Braiding Sweetgrass, Robin Wall Kimmerer writes that “all flourishing is mutual”—an adage that definitely holds true for Milkweed, its authors, and our readers. Writers benefit from Milkweed’s success by means of increased recognition and royalties. When our writers succeed, it elevates the caliber of new authors on our list. And as the profiles of all our authors are raised, their work is more widely read, and their important messages reach a broader audience. This virtuous cycle would not be possible without the support of our community. Thank you for joining us.
