We’re a spring-board for undiscovered talent. We specialize in promoting and bringing to the public’s eye, new and exciting artistic people. The artists/entrepreneurs must exhibit excellence, positivity and great skill. Our goals include promoting small entrepreneurships by showcasing them in our articles and ads. We are a group of young, positive, professionals. This is what we plan to exhibit at all times!
We’re subject focused. Each month we have a theme. We’re hoping to feature musicians, artists, fashion models, and civic leaders. Our 3 pillars are: Art, Fashion, and Culture Art: Visual and Performing Fashion: Style, Beauty, Hair, & Health Cultural: Events, Food, Wealth, & Community
We hope to have fun, upbeat articles with a slight sense of humor. Keep in mind that we want the magazine to be family-friendly. Let’s keep it all PG-13.
There are 2 types of assignments: Field and Desk Contracts need to be signed by Nov 9 th We will have a photo-shoot after the meeting Need everyone’s biography by Nov 16 th Everyone please find at least 2 candidates to interview. Notify me or Candace for final approval.
