CG Magazine: 2014 funding driveOct 1st, 2013 | By Bart Leib | Category: CG Blog
Issue 10 of CG Magazine came out today: the STRANGER issue, with compelling stories from Priya Chand, Rachel Udin and Memory Scarlett. The issue is free to read on the website.
As we close in on the end of CG Magazine’s first year, we’ve worked very hard to deliver quality, diverse stories from established and new authors. The response has been extremely positive, and we’ve been very pleased ourselves with the results.
We want to continue to publish stories in 2014. A huge part of our decision to seek the funding for SFWA-level “pro” rates as a 2012 Kickstarter stretch goal was so we could offer authors a market that would publish stories other markets might shy away from – to provide a venue for typically underrepresented and marginalized voices.
Crossed Genres Magazine is that market, and can continue to be that market. Even better, after we release issue 12 in December, we can apply to get CG Magazine declared a SFWA qualifying market.
But none of that will happen if we don’t have the funding. In order to fully fund a year of the magazine, we need 600 subscriptions. We have most of those, but the majority of subscriptions are set to expire in the first few months of 2014 – in other words, they don’t help cover 2014 costs.
If want to see Crossed Genres Magazine continue in 2014, please consider subscribing for the 2014 year, or renewing your existing subscription. We also need new subscribers to reach the goal of 600 subscriptions, so please help us spread the word! We have until December 31 to reach the goal! So please consider helping us get there if you can!
Thanks for your support of CG!
