The fourth North Coast Squid literary magazine, which showcases work of writers and artists who live on the north Oregon coast or have a strong connection to the area, will be published in April.
The crowdfunding campaign, through Indiegogo, is just one part of the overall budget. The rest of the expenses are covered through in-kind donations of submission management, design time, editing, and with Squid sales.
Donation amounts range from $25 to $500. In thanks for each donation, a perk is available.
Perks vary, from a copy of the Squid with your name on the donor page, a signed print of the cover image, to a literary agent review of your book proposal. You can even have a character named for you in Phillip Margolin’s next novel.
The campaign funding goal is $3000, with a stretch goal of $5000. That would allow a few pages of color on the inside as well as the cover of the Squid, to showcase great local art that is included with the writing. Any amount raised past the goal will go to the next Squid.

The campaign ends at 1159 PST on March 18.
