Virtual Reporter:: “Iulian, why did you start this magazine?”

Iulian: “Because I can? Ha! That’s not it. Because I wanted to. I get really involved when I get into something, so much so that it becomes an obsession. I’ve been putting off my writing for so long, when I returned to it I felt as though I have discovered a new me. I want to get involved more. I want to be a part of the writing community.

I do run a blog, but I wanted more. I can’t think of a better way than giving other writers an avenue to publish their work.”

Virtual Reporter:: “What about the business model?”

Iulian: “Good question. After all, I am a CPA, so I should know these things. But the true answer is: what business? There’s not a lot to make in short story publishing, at least not until you get to a certain level. I am doing this because I love it. It’s passion.”

Virtual Reporter:: “Where do you see this magazine in three years?”

Iulian: “I see it publishing 6 issues per year with an annual collection issued as an e-book.”

Virtual Reporter:: “What about five years?”

Iulian: “Maybe monthly, with a printed anthology.”

Virtual Reporter:: “That’s very ambitious, don’t you think?”

Iulian: “And you are not real thing.”

Virtual Reporter:: “Good point.”

Jokes aside, running a magazine is not a solo thing. I am blessed to work with an amazing group of people who help me run this ship; they are passionate about reading and writing and donate their time and energy to this project. Please stop by and check our staff page to meet all these lovely people.
