WHAT IS MYTHIC?

MYTHIC (www.mythicmag.com) is a quarterly magazine of science fiction and fantasy. Our aim is to offer broader looks at both categories of short fiction and we are interested in diverse and unique stories that plumb the rich possibilities in the genres that are often overlooked by the status quo. We want great stories. Stories that challenge us. Stories that excite us. Stories that entertain us. Since December 2016, we have been publishing new issues every three months.

WE BELIEVE that the more outlets for creative fiction, especially speculative fiction, the richer and more diverse the fields of imagination will become. The more we allow new voices to be heard and to stir the pot of tired clichés and worn tropes, the more robust the genres will be.

WE BELIEVE the authors who shape those visions are the most valuable resource in all of this and believe they should be paid well for their work. We're grateful to those who've appeared in each issue given the modest flat rates we started with and now the 1 CENT A WORD we're offering but we want to give and do more to make MYTHIC a thriving market for science fiction and fantasy and place where the authors thrive as well. Our primary goal currently is to pay professional rates of at least 6 CENTS A WORD for short fiction. But, we are aiming higher.

HOW WE USE THE FUNDS

Primarily, we are using funds given by patrons to pay the authors. That comes first always. With each milestone we hit as we gain more support from our Patrons, the first thing we will address is what we can pay for the fiction we acquire. Beyond author compensation, we also have the costs for producing this magazine. Design costs. Art costs. Editing Costs. There are other contents and features that we hope to add as we gain Patron support. It all comes down to you, dear readers. Review the rewards we are offering here at Patreon for regular patrons. Join us! Be a part of what we're building: a great speculative fiction magazine for lovers of science fiction and fantasy literature.

STATUS QUO
This keeps MYTHIC operating at current costs: A semi-pro publication paying 1 CENT A WORD for stories, art, and the rest. This is the bare minimum we really need to release new issues quarterly.
