Whurk is creating an arts magazine for Virginia
18

patrons

Whurk publishes a free monthly magazine dedicated to Virginia's creative communities. A fierce supporter of independent culture since 2013, it features interviews and art from local painters, poets, sculptors, authors, musicians, thespians, chefs, brewers, filmmakers, and cartoonists. Distributed to hundreds of locations across the Commonwealth and freely available to read online, each issue encourages the exchange of ideas across city borders. With its distinctively off-kilter approach and uncompromising design, you'll find nothing but articles that are bold, visually engaging, and full of surprise.

We need your support

By supporting Whurk through Patreon, you'll help us to continue our mission to promote the arts in Virginia. Your monthly pledge of $1 per month (or more) will also get you exclusive bonus photos from each issue.

Why should I pay for something that's free?

Good question. Simply put, your monthly pledge will allow us to do more than we could otherwise, things like:
  • Grow our team of writers, photographers, and illustrators
  • Reduce the amount of ads per issue
  • Increase the page count per issue
  • Expand our distribution range and deliver Whurk to even more communities across Virginia
We also have lots of ideas for special projects like music podcasts, online event calendars, film festivals, and other crazy fun stuff, but it can't happen without your support. By becoming a patron, you'll make Whurk better for everyone (including yourself).

But I don't live in Virginia! How can I read your magazine?

No problem, all of our issues are available to read online for free. Plus, if you want to have the genuine physical reading experience, you can pledge $10 per month (or more) to have a copy shipped to your address.
