the fine folks over at Regime Books have devised a brilliant system of paying contributors for issue 4 of Regime Magazine, where $10 from every copy of the mag sold goes towards a fund for paying writers. simply put, the more copies that sell, the more the writers get paid. so everyone should head over there and do it.
from the Regime Books website:
COMING SOON: Regime Magazine of New Writing, Issue 04.
This issue will see the launch of a spanking new model of community publishing – an idea Regime Books invites writers and poets to support.
How will it work? First, we are committed to the following principles:
Regime Magazine of New Writing will remain a not-for-profit enterprise, but also strictly not-for-loss.
We want to pay our writers and poets in currency, not copies.
We are dedicated to printed editions that are supported (and not replaced) by technology.
We will be inviting guest editors.
We will consider inviting suitable sponsors, and opening our books to donors.
Now here are the changes:
Our cover price will increase to $25 a copy (including postage). Why? $10 per copy sold on our website will be evenly distributed to our talented contributors (contributors will not receive free copies or a distribution from copies sold through third party retailers – the cover price for that is eaten by the printer, bookseller and distributor).
There will be 50 poems and 5 short stories included in Regime 04.
There will be two print runs for Regime 04 for orders made through our website.
Your help in spreading the good word about Regime Magazine and the high quality of work we publish has never been more important! Hit up those Facebooks, Twitters, Instagrams, blogs and start talking!
so please go and support writers and poets by pre-ordering the mag. it’s going to be amazing.
