What is Burnt Roti Magazine?
Burnt Roti Magazine is a platform to give South Asian's a voice, as well as somewhere for people from all around the world to come listen to them. The voices are South Asian, but the reader base is universal.
We interview actors, models, artists and musicians, so you can all find your new favourite South Asian creatives! There's also make up tips, food, essays and much much more.
It is available in print and online. It gives writers, illustrators, creators the opportunity to showcase their talents by writing for the magazine, creating artwork to go alongside articles/interviews and working on the video content.
What have we done so far?
We've created two issues, and are working on the next, while maintaining the online world of burntroti.com.
Here are some aunties and uncles reading the first issue!

What we need help to do.
We need money to print our magazine copies in high quality with as much content as possible. We want to be able to pay our contributors as well! Burnt Roti needs to grow, and we need the money for this. Hopefully we'd like to be able to hire staff, so I don't have to do this all alone!
Where we see ourselves in one year.
We're going to be huge. Burnt Roti will be a print/online/video channel that everyone goes to, to find out about all the awesome South Asian artists, actors, designers, writers that they've never heard of before. We want to have staff, offices and a steady paycheck!
With your help, we see this in our future
