Reposted from the latest project update.
WE DID IT! CLOCKWORK PHOENIX WILL PAY PRO RATES. AND NOW OUR NEXT GOAL: A NEW WEBZINE FOR POETRY AND FICTION. TARGET: $10,000.
Thank you all so much! We're overwhelmed.
The next volume of Clockwork Phoenix will pay 5 cents a word for fiction. Again, thank you.
So, we're here. Earlier than expected. And I think there's time to try for something more. I've mentioned before that one of our stretch goals could be creating a new webzine for showcasing poetry and fiction. This is something we've wanted to do for years but completely lacked the resources.
But now, I think we could make it happen.
If this Kickstarter can reach $10,000, that should leave us with enough to fund 12 issues of a new Internet magazine. Each issue will hold one story (word limit 4,000 at 2 cents a word) and two poems ($5 each.) In essence, it will be a continuation of the MYTHIC anthologies we used to produce (that published stories like Cherie Priest's "The Immigrant.")
If we hit that goal, we'll launch in 2013.
I can't think of what else to say other than to repeat, again: Thank you!
