news 3: Help us get started!

Five dollars will pre-order you our first electronic issue.

Please view our kickstarter site and consider contributing.

Why do we need a kickstart?

We’re volunteer writers and artists. We have no budget because we’re not affiliated with a University, press, or corporation like many art and literary journals are. We have basic costs to cover- web hosting, submission software at the most basic level.

We want to do more. We want to pay our cover artists and contributors. We believe artists and writers should be compensated for their work. Paying cover artists and contributors will be a priority if we meet budget goals.

We’d also like to release print copies. Our bare minimum goal for that is one print anthology per year.

Here’s a frank breakdown: If we meet our initial $500 goal, we will be able to launch our first issue and cover the web and software expenses for our first year.

From there, we’ll work hard to raise money by delivering a beautiful product showcasing the best art and literature from emerging and established artists.

Thank you for being part of this with us. Even if you can’t contribute a single cent, the mere fact that you are reading this shows support. The fact that you are visiting the website and that many of you are submitting amazing work to us shows support. We appreciate it.
