Win free books to celebrate three years of Flying Object. Also watch a pie video.

Y’all y’all y’all what if they made pumpkin spice American Spirits, I would shut down my self-governance, I would sit inside buying raffle tickets, like buying a million, and winning all the books. All the books? You can win the books. That’s real.

Flying Object is a wonderful place in Hadley, MA where lots of sweet things happen. They’re teaching young writers, they’re hosting residences, they’re throwing pies on faces.

They are three years old and they’re throwing another huge party and even if you can’t go, you can win an insane amount of books for a simple raffle ticket of $5. Remember last year? You maybe did this last year too and maybe won some great stuff. Buy a couple tickets. Shroud your luck in more luck. Support Flying Object! Win books! Smoke out of a pumpkin! Do at least three of these things!

This year we continue our tradition of hosting an epic raffle and anniversary fundraiser to celebrate the beginning of our new year. Maybe you remember that October 1st is the first day of the year? Well, we want to have more first days and we need your help to continue our work here of supporting artists and writers through programs like our Initiative for Young Writers, Factory Hollow Press, ResidencyX, workshops in poetry and creative writing, a one-of-a-kind public archive of independently published poetry, though regular features on our website, and of course as host to dozens of writers, presses, artists through our public events and exhibitions. Nearly every one of these programs is free and we’ll need your support to keep them that way. Check out our subscription, giving, and membership options (subscribers and members receive free entry and 6 complimentary raffle tickets) and of course. . . .
