SIMONE MUENCH ON SARABANDE + NEA

"Sarabande and the NEA provide an understructure in which imagination, empathy, innovation, and critical thinking can thrive, ultimately elevating the human spirit." —Simone Muench

For more than twenty years Sarabande has received generous funding from the National Endowment for the Arts in support of our publishing and educational programming. Each year, a handful of our titles receive special, earmarked funding from the NEA. Simone Muench's poetry collections Orange Crush, Lampblack & Ash, and Wolf Centos were all made possible through NEA grants. Here's Simone Muench on publishing with Sarabande: 

“The arts are a vital form of sustenance that allow for an illumined, enriched life. In supporting literature and its creators, Sarabande and the NEA provide an understructure in which imagination, empathy, innovation, and critical thinking can thrive, ultimately elevating the human spirit.”
