EC Fundrazr Campaign Kicks Off! Please Donate!



Hi All:
The campaign to raise funds to keep EC going has officially started! Amanda Bergloff (contributing editor and art director) and I have worked hard to make this campaign as easy and rewarding as we possibly can, so we hope you'll donate. The fundraiser is open until October 24.

The donations are one-time, and they start at $10. The rewards are terrific! In fact, I think I'll just let the campaign story I write at Fundrazr do the talking. 

Make sure to read about the rewards at each level. The patchwork of images in this post shows you the rewards you can choose from. You'll receive the images you pick with no watermark, and since all of them are worth $2 or more apiece, you'll be getting good value for your donation.


Here are the details:

Enchanted Conversation contributes to the culture of fairy tale fandom that is thriving worldwide. We give new and established authors a voice for exploring new tales and points of view about folklore. And, unlike many online publications, we pay for content.

Enchanted Conversation: A Fairy Tale Magazine is dedicated to bringing new fairy-tale inspired stories to fans of all things fae and fairy. Poets and writers and readers from all over Enchanted Conversation contributes to the culture of fairy tale fandom that is thriving worldwide. We give new and established authors a voice for exploring new tales and points of view about folklore. And, unlike many online publications, we pay for content.

But EC is extremely expensive, even on a razor thin budget. Ideally, we'd like to pay our contributors more than the current $30 for stories and $10 for poems. And Amanda receives very little for her efforts, while I bear the costs of the publication entirely, losing thousands of dollars per year. We want the financial aspects of the site to be better for all. And more money means better pay and bigger issues.

Enchanted Conversation provides entertaining, fresh content, exquisite art, both old and new, and a market for creative people. But it can't survive any longer without your help. So I'm asking you:

Will you donate $10 or more today to help EC continue?

Contributors at the $10 level will be able to pick five digital images out of 30 that will be available. They are classic, clear, digitally enhanced vintage illustrations for art projects, decor or just enjoying. The fabulous Artisans Shoppe is responsible for the images. Contributors at this level and above will also be named on our patrons page.

Contributors at the $20 level will be able to pick 10 images, plus help pick art for a special edition Issue in EC.

Contributors at $30 level will be able to pick 20 images, help pick art for the special edition, and have a character in a story published in EC named after him or her.

Contributors at the $50 level will receive 20 images, plus a chance to write his or her own post in the special edition. In addition, he or she will be able to pick one free ebook from World Weaver Press's amazing roster of books.

Contributors at the $75 level will receive all of the above rewards, plus all 30 images (total) from The Artisans Shoppe. In addition, they will be thanked in the next anthology I edit about Baba Yaga, coming in 2018 from World Weaver Press.

Contributors at the $100 and above level will receive all of the above, plus have a character named after him or her in one of The Baba Yaga stories.

Please contribute. We love new and old fairy tales, and want to keep Enchanted Conversation alive.
