If you missed out on our Kickstarter campaign you can still order a copy of Susie via Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr.
"I think the importance of doing activist work is precisely because it allows you to give back and to consider yourself not as a single individual who may have achieved whatever but to be a part of an ongoing historical movement." [Angela Davis]
SUSIE is an intersectional literary and art magazine for women-identified and non-binary folks.
Over the past six months, your team at Susie HQ has been sorting through handfuls of thoughtful editorial and visual submissions from around the world. Particularly during this political climate, it is essential that our work, as an independent press, gives power back to those that typically do no have space in the mainstream media, specifically in the modern-day women's magazine.
We're here to present to you stories centered around the theme of Power. To continue our journey, we need your help. This Kickstarter will bring our work to light. You'll have something to hold in the flesh to reflect on.
PREVIEW THE ZINE:
What began as an idea tossed back and forth in a secret online community, has now come to be a full-force passion project amongst several hard-working humans. We need your help to continue producing our work and to fairly pay our talented contributors.
SUSIE MAGAZINE is made possible by collaborators, contributors, and YOU (our backers)! Thanks for all that you do <3

Risks and challenges
Our risk of not meeting our end goal is similar to any independently printed journal. Without the funds to print or the resources to promote, our stories will lay dormant.
Susie is proud to have an extremely diverse and dedicated team with background in press, media relations, distribution, and knowledge of the zine circuit. Once we are funded we will be working diligently to circulate this journal to ensure accessibility for those that need to hear these voices the most.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
