Escape Route is a DIY, cut and paste, community driven zine featuring all female skateboarders worldwide and seeks to inspire all.
ABOUT THE PROJECT: We want to print issue #2 of the community based female skateboarding zine Escape Route. Escape Route is a DIY cut and paste community driven zine featuring all female skateboarders. The idea of the zine is to inspire people to skate, properly represent females in the skate community AND show that we're everywhere!!!!! It also seeks to empower young girls & women to grow into strong, confident leaders who promote and implement social equity via skateboarding.
Escape Route will share submissions contributed by female skaters from around the world. Submissions include photos, articles and interviews of skaters, recipes, tour diaries, reviews, directions to skate spots, up and coming skate events, and places to stay/people to contact when on skate trips.
ABOUT PRINTING THE ZINE: In order to finish this project we need to print the zine (this is where you and Kickstarter come in). It will be a 32 page, color, 5.5"x8.5", cut/paste zine. We would like to use a printing company who uses recycled papers/soy-based inks. It'll be about $500 to print the zines. It will also be about another $600 to distribute the zines (it costs about a $1 to ship in the US. and about $3 to ship worldwide) depending where the zines are sent. $50 will go toward kickstarter/amazon processing fees.
PLEDGES: The money pledged to the zine via Kickstarter will go toward paying for the printing services and postage for distributing the zines worldwide. All leftover money (if any) will go toward future issues of the zine. Since this is a volunteer run zine, we are using Kickstarter to pay for the zine and make the zine more accessible to people regardless of their financial situation by not having to charge $ for Escape Route.
If you'd like to be a part of the #2 issue of Escape Route please send in your submissions to email@example.com by May 21, 2011. We'd like to have the zine ready to print by May 31, 2011 and ready to distribute by June 2011.
