About 87 Bedford
...from all the other awesome, online magazines I already support?"
Firstly, we enjoy stories with a literary bent as much as we enjoy genres, both standard and strange. The stories we have published - from the most authentically realist to the most wondrously speculative - reflect our open aesthetic and our appreciation for the special craft required to meld entertainment and art into a captivating narrative. We are committed to publishing the very best fiction from wherever it can be found.
Secondly, we publish on a rolling basis. This isn't an excuse for us to be slackers. Quite the opposite, in our most prolific month, we've published two full-length stories, a flash fiction piece, two poems, and a book review. Generally, we aim to publish as often and quickly as we can. One of the greatest privileges about being an online publication is the ease in which we can experiment and optimize, and having the freedom to break from traditional publication models grants us the ability to swiftly deliver content to you.
Lastly, when we began 87 Bedford as a work of passion i.e. something we're happy to do without pay, we decided that professional authors deserve to be compensated for their work and passion. We’re very proud to have been able to compensate all our contributors to date, and it would mean so much to us to be able to keep doing so, and continue providing all our content for free to our readers. We could really use your support in order to stay true to our vision!
And we hope you enjoying reading 87 Bedford.
