We're an independent online magazine with minimal overhead. That said, we feel it's important to pay our writers and artists at least a semi-pro rate (and hopefully more, with your help). Each story and illustration is content that Lackington's must remunerate. We also incur costs for things like domain name, upgrades to our website so it works best for our readers and our brand, and--if the stars align--future print anthologies. We want to be able to offer our stories and art free to anyone with an internet connection, but we need a bit of backing to do so.
