Help with a Magazine start up would be appreciated. I am a writer for www.garagechoppers.com which is a small web magazine for home built choppers and more.
I would appreciate any help that anyone could provide in helping with getting a small 60 to 80 page bi-monthly magazine in print. That is close to the same format as Garagechoppers theme.
I have been looking at printing companies that will print it up after it is all layed out. I have not found one in North Carolina as of yet so I may have to farm it out further to one of the ones I found.
This would be an independant magazine without using one of the huge publisher/printers out there.
If you have tatoos, long hair, beards and a great love of doing your own work on your own bike and ride it, your what I want. Course you don't have to have all of those but we have to make a living to and why not do it; doing what you love.
Ads would need to be sold
Writers would be needed
An editor would be needed
Someone who can give advice on the printing and setup would be needed
People to write jokes
People who go to events and would sub-mit articles about them.
Etc Etc Etc
Nuther words, I need a mentor and someone to help get this off the ground. If you can help or have something productive to ad please send me an e-mail at email@example.com
This would be a non-flashy type of magazine like the old days where actual readers rides would be inside and stories and travels, places to go, how to get there and more.
If your looking to get rich fast this isn't going to be it for you because this is just a start up. But maybe we can get it off the ground and put a little coin in our pockets as well to keep us afloat.
