What we've done...

So we talked briefly in class about college being the time to do things with our lives, about people like bill gates and Steve jobs... I would like all of your input I guess on your thoughts here... I'm starting a literary magazine. It is strictly submission based and I am planning on having it ready for print in December. I have received submissions from people all over the world, from people of all ages, both previously published and not. I plan on having the magazine published through an online medium that will print as demand calls for it, copies to be printed and shipped off to those who purchase them. I'd like to know if you guys think this could be successful, regardless the fact that print media is a dying art, or if it is a pipedream. Feel free to be as blunt as possible. Anyway, I'm gonna post about something else here in a few. Can't wait to see what you all have to say.

As far as criticism goes, I really don't have any at the moment. Your idea sounds great, and like you have a great start. I'm sure finding a publishing source that can do it cheap enough at the "one print at a time" method will be one of the hard parts, as to keep it cheap enough for people to order. Check out lulu.com if you haven't already. Aside from that, I'd just say that if you don't already have one, get a website up and going! I know this is a print media magazine, however I feel nothing survives if it's not on the net. I have an article I'll post that I just read in Dwell magazine yesterday that would relate. Good luck!
