Thank you! :)

We've got a full years worth of issues speced at the moment, with about 50 pages of content. We are looking for a few more regular columnists to really flesh things out.

Right now, we have about 9 interviews planned out covering the FMA, and EPAK. If anyone is interested in writing an article or regular column, please see the guidelines on the magazine site. :)

We're planning on going all out with this. :D

I just sent the proof out to the columnists to review, so I fully expect the complete issue to be out July 2nd. It weighs in at about 50 pages. :)

We are also searching for additional contributors.

Basically, every issue we hope to have:
A feature interview
A feature story
4+ regular columns
At least 1 camp review

Also, Humor, product reviews, events listings, web sites, school listings, letters to the editor, and more.

So, there is plenty of room for fresh ideas and content. :)

I plan on posting 2 versions.
1 is the 1 page at a time, I read it on my PC version
the other is the 'print it myself and fold it so its a real magazine' version.

Beginning with the august issue, there will also be additional subscriber-only content. Once enough interest is there, we will also be offering a regular paper version. Subscribers for the paper edition will have it mailed to them, and also receive access to the online subscribers-only area.

Some of the content will be pulled from MT itself.


To get maximum exposure for your organization and/or school:
- Make sure you are listed on the schools and instructors page.
- Make sure you post your events in the events forum as well as the art specific forum.
- Write an article/review. You get a detailed by-line that can contain both an email address, and web address.
- Submit your book, video or other product to us for review.
