Hello!
My name's Melanie Xulu, I’m an art student and the founder/editor of MOOF Magazine, which I started in June 2017. MOOF is an underground psychedelic music & arts magazine, online and in print (quarterly).
You can visit our online shop here

The first issue of MOOF, and the creating of the website was entirely self-funded. Thankfully, over the months, donations, advertising and pre-orders have helped, but it's not at all stable or completely reliable. If we are going to continue publishing MOOF magazine we will need a more secure and stable pot of MOOF money. In the short time the mag has been up and running, we've managed to get an amazing and ever-growing team of writers, artists, and contributors from all over the world on board, the magazine has sold out internationally, and we're reaching a growing average of 3000+ visitors per month on the website. We also have a successful fortnightly MOOF radio show on local community radio.

As readers of MOOF will know, there are few publications like it left. Being completely independent and having that "DIY" ethos, means we don't have a filter as such, and can publish whatever we like, whenever we like. Most magazines are moving online, but in an age of digital everything, we think it's extremely important that print publications continue to exist - you won't get that 'fresh off the press' smell from an online blog!
As well as this, a large part of MOOF is promoting, supporting and shedding light on the current psychedelic music scene, which means doing interviews with current bands, reviewing new albums, and playing new music on the radio show, is important to us. We also cover psychedelic art, culture and film, and have an 'artist spotlight' feature on the site where we interview up-and-coming artists. 

But, we could do so much more if we didn't have the worry or pressure of lack of funds on our shoulders. So, Patreon to the rescue! Becoming a patron of MOOF will help give us a stable monthly income which we will be able to put towards the printing of the magazine, getting merchandise made, and ideally being able to pay our amazing writers and contributors. By becoming a patron, you'll get access to exclusive content, first dibs on merchandise + much more! 

Thanks for supporting us on this journey, we have high hopes for the future and your support will help us massively.

Love & joy,
Melanie
