We’ve Got Issues—And We Want to Share Them

Lilith magazine​, turning 40 this fall,​ is moving to a lovely new office in ​two weeks. ​Please help us find an appropriate home for some of ​​our cherished back issues. (Alas, we can’t take them all with us.)

Do you teach a class that ​would enjoy having a print copy of a classic back issue? Are you part of a Lilith salon, writers group or rosh hodesh group that would appreciate these vintage issues? 

We’ll gladly send ​boxed ​magazines ​of whatever issue you choose (or tell us to choose) ​in minimum quantities of 30 ​each. Please help us by sharing this offer widely.

You can choose from these (click on the links to see the full table of contents of each issue):
