Do you love books? Us, too.


Fictionist Magazine is dedicated to providing book-related news, reviews, interviews, and more to our readers without being affiliated with a publisher. Our content is just that — our own.

Fictionist was created in mid-March 2017, after a Tumblr post highlighted the need for a neutral YA-focused magazine. A group of bloggers got together to make that dream a reality. Right now, Fictionist is run by a group of bloggers, editors and designers who are working for free to bring Fictionist into the world. 

Our Goals




Our goal, first and foremost, is to pay our writers and editors! They started out by donating their valuable time to our site, and now we're glad to report that we've started paying a few bucks per article thanks solely to our Patreon donations. We're forever grateful for you all. 


The Podcast




Our podcast, Fiction Forward, is currently on hiatus while a co-host is recovering from illness. In the meantime, here's our pilot episode, and the podcast can be found on both iTunes and Google Play.

Fiction Forward focuses on gender and POC (people of color) representation in YA, and why it's an important topic. Learn more by listening today! If you want to listen to outtakes, "call in" to the show, or get an episode before it airs, make sure to donate and claim your reward!

How to pledge a one-time donation


We've been asked how Patrons can pledge a one-time donation rather than monthly ones. This is a great question! If you'd like to help us out but you'd prefer to only be charged once, feel free to pledge the amount of your choice (if you'd like to forgo any frills, you can also choose to donate without any perks) and confirm your pledge. Once the charge goes through and is verified, delete your pledge completely via Patreon, and you will not be charged for any subsequent months! We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for helping Fictionist's writers and editors!

Help us outside of Patreon


Head on 
over to Redbubble to purchase vinyl stickers, pillows, phone cases, notebooks, mugs and more to support us! Note: We only get a percentage of these sales, so if you want the money to go directly to us, Patreon may be a better alternative -- Redbubble is great, though, and feel free to buy as much branded merch as you'd like!

Here's a direct link to Redbubble.

We're also accepting ads on our site! We have set prices for all ad sizes, and we'll even design an ad for you! Email us for more details. 

Transparency is important to us! If you have a question about how articles get written or edited, how Q&As are put together, or anything else, connect with us and we'll answer all of your questions!

Shout Out!
$1 or more per month
For just $1, we'll give you a personalized Twitter and/or Facebook shout-out as a show of true gratitude. 

Please Note: If you'd like to participate in a Patrons-only giveaway, the minimum is $2.
Buy us a cup of coffee (or tea)
$3.50 or more per month

For the equivalent of the price of a cup of coffee, you can help Fictionist pay its writers, editors and hosting fees. We'll give you a shoutout, too!

Also: We will be hosting plenty of book giveaways, and many will be Patreon-only! Our Patreon backers will have a much better chance of winning free books and swag!

Ask an author question & a follow back
$10 or more per month only 9 left

Seriously, thank you! We all have those monthly $10 charges that can add up, and we're beyond blown away by the fact that you'd let us be one of them.

  • Ask authors questions! We'll send you a list of upcoming interviews and you can ask an author a question of your choice.
  • (Note: questions must be approved by us)
  • We will follow you back on either Twitter or Instagram (your choice)
  • Also: We will be hosting plenty of book giveaways, and many will be Patreon-only! Our Patreon backers will have a much better chance of winning free books and swag!
Free ARC + Contributor Credit!
$25 or more per month only 50 left

WOW. You're serious? You're going this high? We're that cool to you? THANK YOU SO MUCH. You have single-handedly paid for 90% of Fictionist's hosting fees! You're keeping our website up and our writers paid!

  • Your name under the "contributor" header on our Staff page! This also allows you to be a part of FIctionist's board. We'll add you to an email list which we'll use to get feedback, ideas and more!
  • We will mail you your choice of ARCs in Fictionist's library EVERY MONTH (we will send you a list). Keep in mind that if a writer is still reading the ARC for a review, there may be a delay in shipping until they're finished. 
  • Plus, all previous prizes (author questions, shoutouts and follow backs)!
  • Also: We will be hosting plenty of book giveaways, and many will be Patreon-only! Our Patreon backers will have a much better chance of winning free books and swag!
Goals
$12 of $100 per month

Our first $100! 


This will go, first and foremost, toward paying our writers (even if it isn't as much as we want to pay them yet). Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for allowing us to pay our team members and our hosting fees!
