So... this is the next step in the rest of the journey that is "Say what... Magazine". It's been four years so far... 48 "official" issues preceded by one "trial run" issue in December 2013. It has been a wonderful, thrilling, terrifying, stressful, exhilarating, joyous, tearful, entertaining journey so far, and now it's time to see who is willing to drop a few pennies in the cup to help kick it up to the next level.
Over the last four years, I have been fortunate enough to have been gifted content from some great individuals and companies but to really make some progress I need the resources to pay key contributors for premium content. As a labour of love, this magazine has required me to downsize my external commitments, and with general living costs rising I now find I am unable to generate the extra funds by myself.
This is where you come in.
For a very small contribution, you can help me to raise the bar to the next level. In return, there are some rewards on offer - small to start with but sure to grow as resources and revenues increase. Early access to the magazine, a patron-only newsletter, giveaways, and behind-the-scenes access to images, videos, etc. for special events... and more to come!
Thanks for coming to check the page out, and I hope you'll see fit to add your name to the patron list!
Please Note: If you have a reward that involves your details, links and/or an advertisement being included, you will be contacted during the month prior to first publication if possible. Deadline for advertising is the 16th of the month prior to publication.
All Patrons from the $5 tier and up will get EARLY ACCESS to the magazine* as part of their rewards. An email will go out once the magazine is fully completed and uploaded to the servers, and patrons are welcome to get stuck in early. Competitions will not open up eartly though, so you will need to remember to enter after the 1st of the month.
* Where possible. Sometimes, due to circumstances beyond control, the magazine may publish later than planned, and 'early access' may not be available. This is a bonus perk, and not guaranteed every issue.
UPDATE - February 2019
UPDATE - August 2018
Patreon has now switched this over to the 'Pay Ahead' system, where new Patrons are charged at the time of sign-up and the perks are unlocked immediately! Recognition will be given in the following issue, however, I will be sure to say thanks and welcome you via the Facebook page within a few days of your first pledge being cleared.
