About this project
Our $7,000 fundraising goal will allow us to print a minimum of 3,000 copies of a 42-page, glossy, full color magazine about Burner art and culture to distribute at Burning Man 2012. It will also cover shipping costs, augment our schwag costs (we're bringing tons of cool stuff to playa like our surprise gifts for scavenger hunt winners!) and help us truck literally THOUSANDS of pounds of magazines to the playa!
We'll be hosting a BURN AFTER READING MAGAZINE COFFEE HOUSE at Sacred Spaces Village at (roughly) 4:30 & Esplanade : Tuesday -Sunday 9:30am-Noon. Our BAR MAG Coffee House will feature world music, story telling, interviews, talks, stickers, scavenger hunts, a documentary screening, lots of comfy spots to read the print version of BAR MAG and of course, delicious and fresh fair trade coffee.
Burn After Reading Magazine was founded in February of 2012 by a group of volunteers who love Burner culture. Our staff is all over the country documenting art, covering events, taking photos, interviewing people and getting to the heart of burnerism! What compels us to spend so many hours, money, sweat, tears, and heart to make these giant pirate ships, these mind-blowing kinetic skeleton sculptures, these fire-breathing steampunk octopus art cars?
Our dedicated volunteer team is ready to pour their hearts into the gifted Burn After Reading Magazine on-playa, print edition, and bring it to Burning Man this year. This magazine is about Burners, by Burners and for Burners. We want to write about the amazing things that you're doing! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're psyched to feature your art and projects in our magazine.

Below are mock-ups of the print magazine for Burning Man 2012!!! This is what your donations will fund!! Thank you!
We will have several on-playa distribution points. Our main location is Sacred Spaces Village (4:30 & Esplanade) where we will host morning coffee! Come on by and grab a cup o joe while you fondle our glossy pages! We also plan on having drop offs at The Black Rock Beacon, Center Camp and those long ice lines!
Our focus for the print magazine will be in-depth interviews of burner artists who are creating art for Burning Man 2012. If you're working on an art piece that we should write about please send us an email and we'll send a reporter your way!
We are an all volunteer staff of about 15 burners hailing from all over the world! Do you want to be apart of BAR MAG? Everyone is invited to write for us! Just send us an email at email@example.com.
Sure! If you're a backer and you'd like a copy of the magazine sent to you please email us with your contact information and address. Shipping is expensive and we are a volunteer organization so please be mindful of these factors when requesting a mailed copy.
