Salt & Mirrors & Cats is an upcoming vintage-style literary magazine founded by Superstition Sam and Signe Maene, with layout design by the folk horror illustrator Prairie Bones. Our purpose is to publish a variety of voices from new and established authors inspired by the whimsical—but sometimes, also frightening—world of superstitions, with submissions ranging from short stories to poetry, as well as flash fiction, artworks, and referenced articles. Additionally, we would also be working in collaboration with The Alternative Stories and Fake Realities Podcast to produce an audio version of the best stories submitted to our zine. But we need your help to turn this dream project into a reality! By contributing to our goal, you will be helping us towards: - Printing costs, so that we can create a physical copy of our zine, - Design commissions, created by the wonderful Prairie Bones, - And most importantly, author payments—as we believe in the importance of supporting the creators who shall transport you to their own magical, unique, and superstitious world in the pages of our zine. As a Backer Reward, everyone that contributes to our goal shall receive a FREE DIGITAL COPY of Salt & Mirrors & Cats once it’s finished, with the addition that every supporter that contributes with over £20 shall also have their name printed in the magazine, together with our eternal gratitude. Then, once we reach our goal, a call for submissions will be put out and everyone will be welcome to submit! Any kind of help, no matter how small, is important and will make a real difference. That’s why, even if we don’t reach our target goal, we shall still go ahead with our project, except that we would aim for a proportionally lower quantity of submissions.
