We are a new independent publication, which means our funds are very limited at this time.
Our editors work tirelessly to make sure Seaborne Magazine publishes the best writing and artwork about the sea. But that is not all they do – they also handle social media, our upcoming blog, promotion, sales, reaching out to charities and so much more. And they do it all for free.
We also believe that our contributors should receive payment for their submissions. To help make this and other essential activities possible, you can take our editors out for a virtual, socially-distanced coffee.
What Your Donations Will Help Pay For
Submissions – your donations will help pay our contributors, without whom there would be no magazine.
Overheads – website and domain hosting, layout and photo editing software, these are all things which help us reach a wider audience and provide the best quality content possible, but they aren’t free.
Our Team – we work hard to do what we do. The primary reason new publications fail within their first year is because their founders underestimate the amount of time and effort it takes.
Other Ways You Can Support Us
An obvious way is to buy our magazine. Our first issue will be out in March 2021, and we aim to publish biannually (March and September). We are exploring the option of making it available for pre-sale, but until then, there are other ways you can help.
You can support us by following us on social media and spreading the word about our publication. Feeds are overcrowded with all sorts of things these days, so increasing our exposure is a fantastic way to help.
