The Penny Dreadful is a new literary arts magazine from Cork City, Ireland. It was founded by a small team of University graduates who felt they could significantly add to the vibrant cultural scene in Cork. In true DIY style the mag has been seen in coffee shoops all over Cork City as well as further afield in places such as Barcelona and L.A.
Now they’re looking to move into a ‘proper’ printed version and need your help. So if you care at all about literature, DIY, the arts or people creating, doing, trying in general then head over to their fund:it page and give them a few quid.
Here’s what they have to say about their venture:
Whether you’re a fanatical patron of the arts, like a sort of Irish Medici who says “yar wan”, or you just want to pre-order your copy of The Penny Dreadful while helping out the magazine too, and in these troubled times you can at least say that you have that sorted, then link on in. The least you can do is take a look..actually the least you can do is nothing but…ya know… and if you don’t want to donate then share the link, maybe you know someone who does. Either way, crowd funding like this is your opportunity to become personally involved in the arts that you consume. Come October you can hold a copy of The Penny Dreadful in your hands and say “I helped to make this possible” and how often do you really get to do that? Check out the rewards we’re offering and prepare to receive our eternal gratitude.
Issue one will feature an interview with Roddy Doyle, fiction from Mercedes Helnwein, poetry from Theo Dorgan and Alan Titley, as well as many more writers, known and unknown.
They will be launching the issue in October, in Cork City with a night of readings, jazz, and hard liquor. Sounds good. Get involved.
