For several years I'd been kicking around the idea of creating an alternative news publication. Then one day, Eureka! I up and did it! I founded Purple Walrus Press in October of 2012, and five yeas later PWP is very much on the radar of those who enjoy reading news from a local, independent source.
Here's where you come in! Just like pledging to support NPR or subscribing to the NY Times, supporting PWP via Patreon is the way that our fans & readers can support PWP. Signup for a monthly contribution of any amount and know that you are actively supporting an independent source of news in your community. Visit our Patreon page here to sign up for a monthly amount! Or if you'd rather just make a one time contribution, you can do that via PayPal.
What exactly are you supporting? Well, PWP is an Ypsilanti based publication that is primarily focused on Ypsilanti / Ann Arbor area news, although we also address issues and news on a state and national level. Purple Walrus Press strives to shine a light on interesting topics and provide perspectives not always featured in the mainstream media. PWP also covers breaking news events in and around the Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor area.
In addition to our news coverage, PWP features music and theater reviews! Purple Walrus Press publishes online articles daily on our website. Look for interesting columns on topics of local, state and national issues interest from various PWP writers as well as reporting and opinions from yours truly, of course!
PWP articles are featured in The Ann's ANNthology weekday e-newsletter as one of the independent journalists, publications and thought leaders of Washtenaw County.
Thank you for your encouragement & support!
