As the President of Interlitq, I am delighted to welcome you to our latest instalment of Issue 14, "A New Zealand Literary Showcase", celebrating the wealth and diversity of contemporary writing from New Zealand.
I would also like to take this opportunity to invite you to make a donation to The International Literary Quarterly, a not-for-profit corporation in the State of New York. Since its inception in November 2007, the review has published work by both Nobel Laureates and emerging writers, and in more than 90 different languages, in its quest to ensure that the best literature is made available to us all, wherever we may be in the world, and at the click of a finger. In view of the fact that access to Interlitq is free of charge, that the site is devoted solely to literature and does not carry advertising, and also that to date the review has not received funding from any grant-making organization, I believe that you will understand that donations such as these are the review's lifeblood. Thank you so much for helping to ensure that Interlitq will continue, as it has up until this moment, to work tirelessly in order to promote and nurture outstanding international literature, and thereby play its part in helping, through the power of this very literature, to break down those barriers that are still all-too-prevalent between us.
