Thanks for your ongoing involvement,


Become a Patron

We have some wonderful supporters who make an annual contribution to help keep the Almanac ticking along. This especially allows us to develop projects. For example:

Peter Stirk makes a contribution towards paying a student who is an emerging writer/historian/journalist a fee to have a stint as an intern on our website. He also pays a number of memberships, especially for those trying to make their way as writers.

Steve Earl also makes a personal contribution which goes towards paying for special memberships.

Our volunteer editors give their time every week. They include David Wilson, Luke Reynolds, Dave Brown, Smokie Dawson and others.

If you would like to make a contribution as a patron please email John Harms.


Sponsorship and advertising

We also have sponsorship and advertising packages available. These give your company/organisation presence on our website, in our printed publications, in our e-newsletter and at our events. To find out more about becoming a sponsor/advertiser please email John Harms.
