Spilt Magazine is a unique approach to visual and literary arts, embodying the principles of equality, compassion, and expression. We are aiming to provide a visual and literary arts magazine that displays art from people who do not normally get published- immigrants, people in poverty, graffiti artists, the disabled, convicts, senior citizens, the homeless, and the youth. In an effort to educate people that even the less fortunate and ignored create beautiful works of art, we hope to connect our readers with these people and bridge the gap that plagues today's society with something we all have in common: art.
We are currently working with high schools, homeless shelters, youth centers, correctoinal facilities, art councils, and resource centers to acquire submissions for the issue, and we accept submissions from everyone and anyone interested.
Through Kickstarter, we hope to raise approximately $500 to print 100 copies of the thirty-page, high-quality issue #1, due out in September of 2011, as a jumping-off point. However, the more money we raise, the more copies we can print! Each issue will cost $10, and will be distributed hand-to-hand and through Magcloud. The initial money back will go to covering printing costs for issue #1 and for the next issue, and any extra money will go directly back to the artists!
If you are unable to contribute financially, you can help us out by contributing art or literature, or just by spreading the word around to anyone who you think might be interested in contributing! Submissions should contain a short personal history or personal information, and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any other questions, feel free to email me.
