Each issue comes in two formats which are freely available to everyone. The web version presents all articles as web pages, allowing for easy sharing and comments. The PDF version is an entirely formatted magazine, readable online via Issuu, or available for downloading to your computer or other electronic device. There are also advertisements in the PDF version, but they correspond to the blogs, websites, and products of other members of the language community, so even those are useful to the reader who is looking for new resources and outlets.
While all of this has been free to the community and we have managed to operate on a virtually non-existent budget, we’ve realized that in order to keep the magazine sustainable, new financial resources are required. The web version does have a few commercial ads, in the form of targeted ads from Google and affiliate links, they simply don't even cover the basic operating costs.
This is why we are now turning to Patreon, in the hopes that you, our regular readers or those who recently found our publication and would like to see it continue, might be willing to aid us. Your contribution helps to cover the cost of writing and formatting on dual platforms as well as allowing us to bring more and varied content to you in the future.
Please consider making a donation, let us know what you like and want to see in the future, and share us with your friends!
The dollar amounts listed for rewards are the minimum monthly payment necessary to receive that reward.
