As an advocate of New Village Press, your engagement enlivens community. Your purchases of New Village books keep the Press alive. However, book sales alone only cover half the publishing costs, the other half needs to come from funding. Thats why, in a bid to underwrite the next year of publishing, we are calling all well-wishers, enthusiasts, advocates & patrons to join our Community Supported Publishing!

Support the mission to build vibrant, healthy and compassionate communities. Celebrate and reward the ingenuity and compassion of people rebuilding society. Help make the world a better place. Enable New Village Press to continue its work, which commercial publishers don’t risk, and join the creative, citizen-initiated, social transformation movement. Together, we can show how expressive arts can lift societies out of stuck places in ways that argument, armies, and legislation can never accomplish.

Please help spread the message and/or place your contribution here.

Appearing in the Journal of Theatre Research International, Vol. 38/3 – 2013 is a review of  New Village Press two-volume set publication, Acting Together, by Anthony Ellis, Associate Professor – Renaissance Literature at Western Michigan University. Below is an excerpt.

“In keeping with its policy and education objectives, this project has produced resources in other media to complement the volumes. These include a feature-length documentary and an accompanying toolkit, and a website with news, interview clips, and event announcements, including film screenings. These resources testify to the politically and personally salutary effects of performance while offering a range of applications to artists, policymakers and educators.”
