You're accessing this slice of literary goodness for free because we believe anyone and everyone should be able to access the best in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and art. And because we don't ask our readers to pay for Guernica, we do—for web hosting, server costs, and the other incidentals necessary to keep Guernica up and running, and, most importantly, open and available to as many people as possible, around the world.
If like us you believe in a widely accessible Guernica, consider supporting the magazine with a tax deductible donation or by subscribing. We'll only be asking for two weeks, three times a year—asking for support from readers like you on your own terms: our all-volunteer staff gives to Guernica out of love, and we extend that friendship to you. If you love Guernica, click to help make sure an ever-growing community can continue to read, react, and participate. Each month, more than 100,000 unique readers visit guernicamag.com—even a small amount, a couple of dollars, from just half of those visitors would sustain us for many, many moons.
Our infinite thanks,

Guernica Contributor J. Malcolm Garcia Wins Studs Terkel Award
May 2, 2012
Congratulations to J. Malcolm Garcia, who has won the Studs Terkel Award for Media and Journalism for his piece “Smoke Screen,” which appeared in the Aug. 15, 2011 issue of Guernica. Research funding for “Smoke Screen”—about the burn pits the U.S. Military uses to dispose of garbage—came from The Investigative Fund at The Nation Institute.
The Studs Terkel Award is granted by the Working Class Studies Association. Award judge Paul M. Basile of Fra Noi News praised Garcia, saying that he “circled circled the globe to expose a tragedy that had previously been hidden from the eyes of the world.”
The WCSA award winners will be honored at a banquet at the How Class Works Conference banquet on June 8 at SUNY Stony Brook.
Readers like you make Guernica possible. Please show your support.
