A note from Emily:

Bel Esprit provides a platform for artists to publish their work.

We pay $25 per piece to all artists, but we don't charge you for enjoying their work.


I do not keep a dime of the profits for myself.  It all goes back to keeping Bel Esprit alive.  Considering contributing to the project.
