NYSCA Regrant Opportunity
With more than 400 literary magazines and presses, New York State has one of the most active populations of literary publishers in the country, and is home to the largest number of CLMP members. The New York State Technical Assistance Program [NYTAP] is the program administered by CLMP and supported by the (NYSCA) New York State Council on the Arts Literature Program that provides assistance specifically to the magazines and presses of New York State.
NYTAP was first developed in the Fall of 1997 when it became clear to both NYSCA and CLMP that publishers would benefit greatly from technical assistance. NYTAP has succeeded in engaging magazines and presses that represent the range of publishers in the state from Review: Latin American Literature and Arts, White Pine Press, The Hudson Review, and BOA Editions, Ltd. to emerging publishers such as Bright Hill Press, Blue Line, Lungfull! and Mosaic Literary Magazine.
Through NYTAP, CLMP supports New York State's diverse community of publishers through targeted technical services. These services aim to strengthen and connect this community while increasing the organizational capacity and fiscal stability of individual publishers. Through NYTAP also develops and administers programs at a state level that can then be adopted more effectively by CLMP at a national level. The NYTAP program cultivates a strong presence for independent publishing in the nation's publishing capitaland throughout the culturally and artistically rich state of New York.
NYTAP's primary methods for delivering services to publishers include:
- Workshops and roundtables on marketing, fundraising, organizational development and other issues facing independent literary publishers; (print and on-line transcripts of select roundtables and workshops are made available so publishers nation-wide can benefit from these practical and informative conversations;
- Organizational Capacity Project Grants in the amount of $500 to $1500;
- One-on-one Mentor Pairings, a granting program providing publishers with professional consultants to work on specific projects;
- Travel Fund, offering stipends to assist publishers in taking advantage of professional development opportunities;
- Forums for Exchange and Networking Opportunities to increase shared learning and resources throughout the state; and
- Consultations with the CLMP staff, who are available to meet informally with publishers to strategize projects and help initiate collaborations.
