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 I'm 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. With that in mind, our aim is to become a professional market. According to the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA), to be a pro market, authors must be paid at least 8 CENTS A WORD. That is our goal at this point.

HOW WE USE THE FUNDS

1. Author compensation.
The main reason we are using Patreon is to provide fair compensation to our writers. Every dollar of support we receive addresses this aim. That comes first always. As stated above, our overall goal is to qualify as a professional short fiction market.

2. Production costs and improvements to the magazine.
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--and a great community too.
