Arsenika is creating a speculative fiction magazine

$64
per month
Arsenika is a quarterly journal of speculative poetry and flash fiction. Each issue contains at least two flash fiction pieces, four poems, and a podcast of the editorial and all included work. 

Currently, Arsenika is being funded out-of-pocket by S. Qiouyi Lu, with pay rates at pro level for fiction ($60/story) and semi-pro level for poetry ($30/poem). In time, we hope to increase pay to a professional rate $60/poem as well and expand each issue to ten pieces—or more, if we raise more funds.

Patreon offers a platform for readers and fans like you to help provide a steady source of income for Arsenika that ensures the magazine has a solid foundation and room to grow. All funds go first and foremost to our artists and authors; anything leftover goes toward hosting the magazine, and finally toward paying its staff.

We have multiple reward tiers for you to consider. Thank you as always for your time and for reading.

Goals
$64 of $135 per month
Reaching $120/month means that the minimum amount of content for each quarterly issue (cover art, two flash fiction pieces, and four poems), plus hosting costs, are funded through Patreon. Hooray, self-sufficiency!
