It’s Launched

Hi everyone,

After spending all day yesterday planning, budgeting and designing, I have launched the website for my new literary magazine, SpinebindI am so overwhelmed by the positive responses that it has gotten so far. I have had many messages from people excited to submit, and also many from people who are willing to help me make this dream a reality. I can already see the community-building effects of starting this magazine, and it’s amazing. I started receiving submissions just hours after launching the magazine, and I’ve been in contact with people from the other side of the world who are interested in getting involved, whether it be submitting or even helping financially.

I spent today designing the front cover of the first issue, and learning how to use the publishing software that will allow people to read it in a flip book format once the first issue is released. There are so many things to learn but I’m enjoying every little bit of it.

It’s crazy for me to think that an idea that has been sitting in my head for years is finally out in the world. I was a little nervous to share it with my writing group at first, because I was afraid that they might think that I think I’m better than them in some way. Of course this magazine has nothing to do with status or ego, but I was so worried that people wouldn’t get it. On sharing it with my writing group however, I was blown away by the positive responses. They were so excited and supportive, and have been helping me immensely with getting the word out. I’m extremely lucky to be surrounded by so many incredible people.

I am so thankful to absolutely everyone who is helping me with this project, even if it is just a word of encouragement. I will be taking submissions for the first issue from now up until the 20th of February. If you are interested, head on over to the Submissions tab.

I feel like shouting “Thank you” from the rooftops.

Yours Sincerely,

Tamara Drazic
