FUNDING CAMPAIGN

We are a not-for-profit publication supported by the genorosity of our readers. All proceeds from our chal'apparel line go towards the production costs of our magazine and future projects. Proceeds from our sales go towards the following:

  • FUNDING OUR SUMMER ISSUE (paying hardworking creators who contribute content)
  • MAINTING OUR ONLINE PRESENCE (costs associated with website and submission manager maintenance)
  • ESTABLISHING OUR DISTRIBUTOR NETWORK (a network of local and indie bookstores where creators featured in our print issue can get more exposure)
  • FUNDING OUR PROMPT COMPETITIONS (competitions that encourage creators to think outside of the box and be compensated for their time)

Our chal'apparel designs are meant to be meaningful and celebratory of creators and what their creations mean to society. Our current fundraising campaign will last until July 31, 2018. We are also accepting donations that, at this point in time, are not tax-deductible.

PASSION-PAIN-POWER WRITER SHIRT

This design was inspired by the toil and joy that is writing, and the ever-willing servant that is the writer. The highlighted "i" is emboldened by the red that leaks from the pen tip, a reminder of how deeply personal and demanding the writing process is. The pen stands in front of a globe patterned with typewriter keys spelling "PASSION-PAIN-POWER".

DEPARTMENT OF MOM: APPROVED SHIRT

It takes courage to peel away from the grain and do something different, something creative, something true to you. In this life of self-discovery and experimentation, it is hard to remember what really matters: what Mom thinks. Here's a reminder that no matter what, there's at least one person in our corner that'll keep us chugging on.
