At this level you can tell all your friends that you support new writers and are helping to fund an environment for artists to flourish. 
I Want to Learn

You will relieve a members only, monthly email of some of the major writing mistakes we've found in the last month of submissions; no authors will be harmed in this process (quotes will be altered so the author cannot be identified) and seeing the mistakes of others is a good learning experince.

About The Quill Magazine is an ad-free non-profit corporation registered and operating in Alberta, Canada. Our total budget is donated by our board of two dedicated editors and writers; we operate as non-profit-corporation (registered as The Quill Magazine Publishing Limited) and have no intention of ever turning a profit off the site. Our only goal is to provide an environment that inspires writers to write, and readers to read; we want to encourage more people to venture down the path of creative writing and aim to provide an audience of similarly focused individuals as an audience.

Our panel of two editors provides a short critique of each and every piece submitted to the Quill for review. We have felt the self-doubt of the editor's inbox too many times and hope to do away with the one-sidedness of the creative journal submission process. As this is the 21st century, our online system allows writers to login and change, delete, or re-submit their work without ever requiring the help of an editor. 

All of our IT and coding is done in-house by one of our board members, this enables us to run on a micro-budget of $40.00 a month to cover all of our IT and hosting costs. We are currently only able to pay $1.00 for every accepted submission, but with your support we will be able to increase this amount; every dollar donated will go directly back to the writers submitting work to us. 

We are seeking $300.00 a month in funding to cover our server costs and to enable us to pay more for each submission we accept. At $300.00 a month we will be able to pay 8 writers a month the industry standard rates of around $40.00 for every submission. This budget will allow us to grow our community by attracting talented new writers and, through increased exposure, attracting a larger audience to the site.
$0 of $100 per month
With this our server cost is 100% covered on a month-to-month basis. Now we can start focusing on paying our contributors.
