We always get asked, “how do you cover print costs for Yewth?” “Why don’t you charge money for the magazine?”
These are two very good questions.
The simple answer is, we want everyone to be able to pick up our magazine, regardless of their bank balance.
However, in order for us to continue operating efficiently we need moolah from somewhere. That’s where we do need your help.
Yes, we’re asking for dollars, but we want you to decide how much. We are creators asking to be paid in creative ways, away from a cover cost. This is where Patreon comes in.
Patreon is a platform where people can pledge as little as a few bucks a month under a subscription agreement. Rather than paying a set price, you head to our page on Patreon and choose a price you think is fair in exchange for the content we are producing.
This not only includes the print magazine, but regular articles, videos and more we publish online, as well as events we put on. This means we can cover costs and continue through your support as a patron of Yewth.
It could be the equivalent of one less beer or coffee per month... the more patrons chipping in the more we can grow and cover the cool things happening in the local and national scene.
How it works:
Head to www.patreon.com/yewthmag
Hit the ‘Become a patron’ button
Choose how much you’d like to pledge per month (you can unsubscribe anytime).
Then we’ll offer you a reward for valuing the work we do.
