As an independent magazine with almost a decade of experience, The Tribe is ready to expand to print journalism. Help us achieve this.
About this project
The Tribe is an independent magazine based in St Andrews. With almost a decades experience we are ready to take our magazine to the next level and branch out into print journalism. At a time when print journalism seems to be in decline, we are a passionate group of students determined to do everything we can to stop that trend. Help us achieve this goal by donating today.
Take a look at our website to find out more about we do: http://www.thetribeonline.com/
We are traditionally an arts magazine but we have such a talented and diverse range of journalists that we are also branching into politics, news and sports to engage readers still further. We are also starting an entirely new section, unique to our paper, that will feature journalists writing in their first language and so attract multi- lingual audiences to our magazine.
We are raising funds to cover the cost of getting the paper printed, set up a business bank account, and provide us with appropriate graphic design equipment to layout the paper to the best of our ability. We need £2, 000 to set up the business and cover the cost of getting the first two issues printed.
Print papers are such an important way to communicate news and ideas with people, please take the time to support us.
Risks and challenges
Any new print paper faces potential challenges, but with an engaged student demographic in our town, we are confident that we have the market for this paper to succeed. Our main risk is not securing sufficient funds to enable us to print. As long as we have the finances to put our plan into action, then we can be confident that our journalistic quality will continue to improve.
