Elizabeth Kostova Foundation

May 2017

Dear friends!

We’re 10! No, we are not 10 people – our operating core is only 2. We’re turning 10!

Throughout the past decade it, the Elizabeth Kostova Foundation has been tirelessly committed to supporting literary exchange and empowering writers and translators on both sides of the Ocean.

Have you been to any American-Bulgarian readings in New York or in Sofia or have you read any of the Bulgarian novels published with our support in the UK or in the US? Perhaps you’ve mastered your talent at some of the workshops for translators and writers we’ve organized, have met kindred spirits or have discovered a new author at an EKF event? Have you felt part of the world after having come across Bulgaria mentioned in Anglophone media in relation to literature? Or maybe you've embarked on your cyber trip to Bulgaria with the EKF's Contemporary Bulgarian Writers website?

Well, all of this wasn’t available 10 years ago. We are thrilled to have pioneered all these programs. Even if you haven’t experienced any of this, but if you simply believe in our mission, please consider donating 10 leva, 10 dollars or 10 pounds to show appreciation for our work.

The campaign will be open for 10 days starting on May 10th. And please remember that you could multiply 10 by 10 as many times as you wish if you can afford it (10 x 10, 10 x 100…).

In return, we will do more and we will do it better.

Thank you for your continued support!
