Holl & Lane Magazine is creating a new face of media with honest stories from real women

In 2015 I had a vision for a magazine that felt inclusive, rather than exclusive.  I wanted a magazine that would share ALL parts of life instead of just the happy moments.  I wanted a magazine that would remind us that we're all connected through our shared experiences and that no matter what you go through in life, IT'S OKAY.  I wanted to create a community that allowed women to be able to say "me, too".

Holl & Lane Magazine was created from this idea.  I believe that each time you share a piece of yourself and your journey, you allow someone else to share theirs.  And there is nothing more powerful than that.  

As the editor of the magazine, I have the amazing honor to tell stories from women in all walks of life.  And it's my goal to share the honest stories of life.  In the past we've had stories on miscarriage and infertility, mental health and addiction, body image and self-care, adoption and divorce and so much more.  We are the safe space that our readers are searching for.  The outlet they've been craving for honest media, and the chance to connect with women who have been where they are.  


So how are we different from any other magazine?

Because we share YOUR stories.  We feature stories from your sister, your neighbor, your best friend.  We deliberately seek out stories from women of all ages, races, and life steps.  We strive to reflect all women.

Because we don't just share the Pinterest perfect life.  Though written to inspire the reader to know they're not alone, we are okay with pulling back the veil and showcasing the tough side of life.  Experiences (good and bad) are what make us who we are.

Because we focus on quality.  We aren't a grocery store magazine.  Our thick quality paper and stunning photography is more suited to a coffee table than a checkout line.  Many of our readers use our magazine to display after devouring the stories.

Because we're changing the face of media.  At the heart of it all, we're focused on honesty.  You'll find that not only in our pages, but also from our team.  We aren't secretive about this journey to build a community.  We let you know what we're going through, too.

Because we're building a true community.  More than anything, Holl & Lane exists for connection.  It was at the heart of the magazine from the very beginning and will continue to be to the end.  We don't want you to just purchase the magazine four times a year, we want you to tell us about your daily lives, come to us when you need help, and support the other women that are strong enough to be vulnerable.

Holl & Lane Magazine is a place of support, no judgement, and the desire for honesty in a world filled with competition.  We are here for you, and you are safe with us.  And today we ask you to help us grow and reach more women that need us.  We're only as strong as our community and we need your help.

"Holl & Lane isn't a magazine. Sure, it looks that way. It has stories and a couple ads and pages to turn (or the ability to swipe if you're a digital reader type of person) but there's more to H&L than just that. When you think magazine, you think glossy pages at the end of a grocery store checkout aisle with some celebrity face on it, selling the latest beauty product, and telling you how to make your body look different so your sex life can be better. H&L isn't that. Beyond the thick, matte pages and simplistic cover design (that is clearly worthy of any coffee table) are evergreen stories about real life, strength, and perseverance. There are stories that say, "I've been where you are right now, and there are reasons you're going through this, and here's a way to pull yourself out of the pit you might be in." This isn't a magazine. This is a lifeline. This is someone, somewhere, saying you are not alone. This is a revolution to show women, you are perfect as you are and there are other women just like you who have been standing right where you feel you are right now. It's just that now, because of H&L, you know you are not standing there alone." - Chelsea Oliver

Tiers
Virtual Donuts
$1 or more per month
On the H&L team, we're pretty obsessed with donuts so when you support us with $1 a month, just know that we're celebrating you with the best virtual donut (with sprinkles!). And if we ever meet in person, donuts are totally on us.
Monthly Desktop / Phone Backgrounds
$3 or more per month
Our magazine is known for the pretty photos and inspiring quotes.  So we want to bring those to your devices with these beautiful monthly downloads just for you.  These won't be available anywhere else.  
Behind the Scenes + Your Name in the Magazine!
$5 or more per month
As you might imagine, there is a LOT that goes on behind the scenes of building not only a magazine, but also a business.  At this tier, you'll get monthly letters from the Editor in Chief telling you about what's going on and how we're moving forward.  Plus, with a rebrand coming up, we'll have a LOT to say and $5 Patreons are the only ones that will receive the news!


Not only that, but we'll also put your name in the magazine to thank you.  And you'll still get our monthly phone and desktop backgrounds too!

Twice Yearly Mini Issues
$10 or more per month
Love our issues and wish there were more?  Then this tier is for you.  Not only do you get everything above, but you get 2 digital mini issues per year that won't be see anywhere else.  We know that $10 a month is a lot to part with but it truly helps us keep this magazine running and we are so grateful for your support!
Goals
3% complete
Okay, okay, we know that $2000 is a lot.  But we may as well shoot for the moon, right?  $2000 is a lot of money, we know that.  But if we get there, there is so much we'd be able to do, including:

GROW.  We want to get this magazine into the hands of so many women around the world who need to know that they aren't alone. That is one of our biggest goals and if we reach our goal, it will enable us to promote the magazine in new and exciting ways.

PAY OUR TEAM.  We've all worked tirelessly on this magazine for over two years.  Running a magazine while also having other full-time jobs and responsibilities is no joke.  This will help us pay the people who bring you the stories that you love the most.

PAY OUR CONTRIBUTORS.  The amazing stories and photos that you see spread throughout each issue?  Those are submitted to us for free.  We'd love to pay the people who are so willing to be vulnerable with us and share their stories with the world.

KEEP THE LIGHTS ON.  You know how some people live paycheck to paycheck?  We live issue to issue, always terrified that we'll never be able to afford the upcoming issue.  Each month we have a large stack of bills that come due and that doesn't even account for the printing and shipping of each printed issue.

TAKE A DEEP BREATH.  When you're constantly worried about paying for the bills, you often have a hard time taking a step back and seeing that what you're doing IS making a difference.  This little cushion will allow us to do just that.  To interact more and really celebrate what our community has accomplished.
