As part of a
recent school project (I’m studying Photography) I researched print
magazines on the topic of Paganism. There are some really great publications
out there, and I actually went to the bookstore today to check them out.
One of the things I noticed is, although these magazines often have really
great written content, their layout and visual appeal (with some exceptions) is
rather significantly lower than “mainstream” magazines.
completely understandable due to budget and financial differences between the
mainstream mags and the much smaller pagan publications, but as a photographer
I have an interest in seeing an updated layout for a pagan magazine. As
an urban pagan myself, I also feel that there is a need for a publication
dealing expressly with the unique concerns of the urban pagan.
because of these facts and opinions on my part that I am interested in starting
up a small Urban Paganism oriented magazine with a modern publication
feel. There are several print-on-demand magazine services out there (such
as MagCloud.com) that would be ideal for use in publishing a no or low budget
independent pagan magazine. Ideally, I’d like to create a web zine and
the print version, and have them work together without being strictly
identical. That’s a lot of work, though, so perhaps that will come later.
I’m looking for here is to gauge the level of interest in such a
publication, and to see if anyone would be interested in writing/editing for
the magazine. If you are interested in working on such a magazine,
regardless of whether you have had previous experience in the magazine
industry, please feel free to contact me directly at amianda@secretpassa
Thanks for your
When you are at this event...tell them you heard about it on SoCalPaganevents....
