About this project

$2,102

82

Plunge is fully funded!! At this point, additional funds raised will cover the percentage Kickstarter takes and help pay for issues 3 and 4.

Plunge Magazine will publish quality short stories, poems, and articles about queer women in a variety of genres from space operas to mysteries, wild west to fairy tales, superheroes to the end of the world.

This Kickstarter campaign is to fund the first year of this ezine (2013). Year One will include two issues, publishing in February and August. Starting in Year Two the ezine will publish quarterly.

The $2000 will cover webhosting fees, token payments to contributors, line editing, and marketing. The full budget break-down is available here. Excess funds will go toward Year Two.

If reading stories about awesome queer women in fairy tales, space ships, old west saloons, hooped-skirt gowns, high tech labs, and pirate ships sounds like something you would enjoy, please contribute some money to the fundraising campaign.

    Send me your stories or articles up to 15 pages and I will read through, comment on them, and help you brainstorm past blocks or restructure as needed. Note: This is not an offer to line edit, but rather help with the writing process.

    I would prefer 7 days per work. Not every story need be sent this year. You may save this to use in 2013 as well.

    You may siphon off up to $250 for every $1000 contributed to create a literary prize for ezine-contributors in your name. You may set the prize size, criteria, and when it is offered.

    Note: Prize will be discontinued when the money set aside for it runs out. So, a $250 prize would be one time for one recipient, while a $50 prize would be five times or for five recipients.
