I know it's a little early for this, but I can't help thinking about my summer goals already, thus I've taken to creating a list for my own benefit: like my goal to start up hiking again, or finding a vocal instructor, getting organized around the house, or my changes regarding eating habits. But I don't want to bog you down with these mundane facts about my life. No, what I want is to share with all of you my idea to start a legit magazine. Not like my midnight generated idea making it about digital (Sim) lives; this will be about real ones. Real artists. People who are not yet known to the world. I might want it to be Oregon based, to start off. Perhaps even more focused towards Eugene only, just for the first issue, as a concentrated focus might make a first-time magazine easier to manage. And then, assuming it can become an established (even if just somewhat) magazine, branch off to other cities in Oregon and then move into Washington, and then California (assuming it will become big enough to do that). But I'm getting ahead of myself. This is just one issue fixed on Eugene, Oregon, and the unknown talent that's located here.
I call it: The Creative Coast, and I've already got the line-up:
Seasonal Statement: Letter/s and Stuff From the Creator, Editor, & Staff
Up and Coming: Newly Published/First-Time Authors
Life Documented: Honest Narratives Through Writing and Photography
Rhythmic Composition Alliance: Poetry Section
Painted Paper: Drawing/Painting Section
Beyond Reality: Fiction by New/Unpublished Writers
Critique Report: Critiquing and Analyzing Art of ALL Forms
The Square: Ads
Now I just need the people to make this happen....
Wish me luck!
