STATS:

  • Size: 11.25'' x 14.5''
  • Color: Full Color
  • Design: Retro
  • Amount of pages: 28 to start
  • Production: Weekly
  • Circulation: 10,000
  • Distribution: Logan Square, Avondale, Wicker Park
  • Projected release date: January 6, 2012

Our project is to create a weekly retro-style art newspaper for Logan Square community. We will not only keep our readers updated on the current events in our neighborhood, but will give them a unique opportunity to glance behind the scenes. Local talented people will get a chance to share their vision with others, and local businesses will be able to reach out to the community.

We divided the content into following sections:

  • Editorial Page
  • Theater and Cinema
  • Writing
  • Creative
  • Art
  • Food and Beverage
  • Music and Dance
  • Fashion
  • Architecture and Design
  • Take a Break

We hope to reach a wide spectra of readers and people of all ages. With our variety of articles and approaches we will produce a newspaper that has something for everybody.

Taking into consideration that it will be an art newspaper, the design of it should be a piece of art as well. That is why we spend a lot of time with our designers and consultants to create the unique style and layout. Artists, journalists, illustrators, and others generously volunteer their talent and expertise to our venture. People who not even related to the arts are eager to help us advertise, promote and distribute our newspaper because they believe in our endeavor and realize that we are filling an open niche in the market. Many of our supporters and friends are willing to assist in any way to get things off the ground, and we welcome the input of those outside the Logan Square area. 

Why Do We Need Funds? 

$11,000—will fund the production costs of our first four issues and give us time to find enough local venues to advertise. Thus, we will be able to maintain the stability in our production in the future. Everyone who is working on the newspaper is participating voluntarily to bring this project to the public. But we need your help as well.

By investing in our neighborhood newspaper, you are investing in our community. Let's make it possible together.
