Surge - Issue COVER.jpg

Surge: The Lowcountry Climate Magazine will released its first March 13, 2022. Currently, we are working on issue 2 (late June/early July 2022) and issue 3 (late September/early October) 2022.

 

To bring this project to life, we are seeking supporters and sponsors to help us fund the magazine and keep it free and accessible to the Charleston community.

 

Money raised will help us manage our production costs (printing, mailing, and distribution), as well as give us the ability to offer honorariums to artists and writers for their contributions to this project.

 

Our current cost per magazine ranges between $4,000 - $5,000. Please see below for a cost per issue breakdown.

 

Please contact CO-EICs Sydney and Belvin at surgemagchs@gmail.com or via our online form if you are interested in becoming a sponsor or subscriber.
