Polar Bear Plunge 2016

That's right! We're taking the plunge—again. In 2014 and 2015, our editors-in-chief rang in the New Year with a plunge into the icy waters of Lake Michigan to raise funds that have helped Stoneboat Literary Journal stay up and running and able to continue publishing great fiction, poetry, nonfiction, graphic literature, and artwork.

This year, Rob and Signe will be taking the polar bear plunge again, and we'd like to give those who donate a little something in return. Feel free to donate any amount—even a dollar or two helps—but those who donate the following amounts will receive some exciting Stoneboat prizes:

$10: handmade Stoneboat bookmark
$30: your choice of one of the following Pebblebrook poetry collections: Impersonations by Mark Zimmermann, Momentary Ordinary by Marilyn Zelke-Windau, or a berserker stuck in traffic by Erik Richardson
$50: a one year subscription (or extension of your subscription) to Stoneboat
$75: a two year subscription (or extension of your subscription) to Stoneboat
$100: You choose the dedication for a future issue of Stoneboat!

Oh, and if you're super invested in the suffering of our editors-in-chief in the numbing cold, you'll be happy to know that if we reach our donation goal of $500, Rob and Signe will fully submerge themselves underwater, a feat that is not so easily done, as you'll see if you watch the YouTube footage below of last year's plunge.
