Sigma's Bookshelf, what is believed to be the first free book publishing company exclusively for teen writers, is asking for your support for this year’s Give to the Max Day campaign. Between now and Nov. 17, 2022, our goal is to raise $5,000 to fund the project for another year.

All services required to bring a book to market are 100 percent free for teens whose manuscripts are selected for publication. The company is run by unpaid volunteers, and funded through tax deductible donations paid to our fiscal sponsor, the nonprofit art services organization, Springboard for the Arts.

Since its founding in 2016 by twice published teen author Justin M. Anderson, the company has published 20 teen authored books. We are seeking your support to keep the project going for another year.

100 percent of your donation will go towards the costs associated with bringing books to market. Thank you for your support!
