What's Luna Station Quarterly About?
The on-going mission of Luna Station Quarterly (http://lunastationquarterly.com) is to display the vast and varied talents of women-identified speculative fiction writers. We believe that women have a unique and universal voice in fiction and we aim to get it heard.

Not only do we publish a fine collection of stories every quarter (free to read online), but we also provide support to our authors by spreading the word about their other publishing successes. Additionally, we honor the past and future of creative women storytellers throughout social media.

Where Are We At? Where Are We Going?
We have an all-volunteer editorial staff and pay our authors a token amount (currently $5) for their stories. Our only additional costs are our submission engine and web hosting. So far, our costs have been kept low and mostly paid with a few generous donations from friends and followers.

However, we want to see Luna Station Quarterly grow beyond its current situation. To do so, we need a steady stream of income. Here's what we'd like to see happen in the near future as LSQ expands:
  • Increase pay rate to authors
  • Start paying editorial staff a stipend
  • Purchase advertising space to spread the word
  • Pay columnists a stipend

How Does Patreon Work?
Patreon is not like Kickstarter or IndieGoGo. Those sites work with one-time donations. This is different. Patreon works more like public radio. You pledge to provide a certain amount of money each month (you can cap the amount) and we get to continue putting out great content for everyone to enjoy. In return, you get some special rewards and our sincere gratitude.

What Does Patronage Get You?

Besides the satisfaction of knowing that you'll be helping support diversity in speculative fiction, depending on the level of patronage you choose, you'll also receive an print/digital edition of each issue, access to ebooks of past years, and new publications as they are added to the roster.

We'll also be adding new rewards as we grow! We have some really exciting things in the works for 2019!
