Hi everyone! I'm new to the community. (Like, I literally just joined 5 seconds ago.) Anyway, I'm here because a friend of mine and I decided we wanted to start a magazine that is one part literary and one part slow lifestyle. We are looking for different ways to spread the message about our crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo and I thought looking into some communities on G+ would be beneficial. (I've started having this random affinity for Internet groups, like I'm 13 again, haha.)
Our magazine is called Loveliest: A Journal For Storytelling & Togetherness. We want to feature pieces about life, food, travel, wine, entertaining, dining out—anything you would find in a lifestyle magazine, but structured in the form of a narrative essay so that the magazine actually reads like a compilation of people's journals. We will also accept photography and art prints.
If this sounds like something you would like to see happen, please help us get our online magazine started. We are going to begin there, and then the plan is to come out with our first print issue in January of '16. Even if you can only donate $5, that'll go a long way to getting us toward our goal in the end. We are asking for $5,000 and after only a day of campaigning (our first full day was yesterday), we had already reached 8% of our goal. If you can't contribute, please share the link to our campaign and help spread our vision! (Sorry, is vision a corny word? I couldn't really see a way around it.)
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about our magazine. We're so excited about our goals for this venture and can't wait to get started. We just need a bit of a boost! I hope everyone had a lovely day!
