About

Wild started with a casual conversation with a dear friend and fellow writer/adjunct professor like myself: the requirements of real jobs and the urge to keep creating is such a balancing act (not to mention lonely work). And then the idea - Why don't we do it ourselves? Make a space for storytelling and art within community? We have the technology… and here we are: www.wildquarterly.com

We need you!

We are attempting to print our very first issue and launch our first live event. Writers and photographers published in our first issue will be showing and reading their work on June 7th, 2014 at the Art Exchange Gallery in the East Village Arts District of Long Beach, Ca. 

No. Really. This can't happen without your support!

To make this happen we have a budget: $6100. and a deadline: May 5, 2014.

Together we can bring Wild things to life. You can also follow us on twitter: @wildquarterly to join in the fun.

Risks and challenges

Timing is everything, right?!

Right now I working through editing and laying out the first issue - designing the cover… This is fun but slow. I want it to look great and be typo free! I'm working with my brother who is a wiz with photoshop. And I have friends who are editing pro's. It'll be awesome.

Once the layout and editing are complete - and the project is totally funded - I can send it to the printer: which will take at least two weeks depending on how busy they are… To make sure that we have printed issues at our launch party, I moved our party date to June 7th. A full month after our kickstarter deadline.

Also, If printing falls behind, our 2nd (summer quarter issue will also fall behind. We don't want that! I think I've budgeted enough time.
