Lip Magazine has a month to go on their Pozible campaign to print their next edition and with a lot of Canberra women involved are worthy of your consideration:

Lip Magazine is an alternative, independent magazine for young women. Launched in 2003, the magazine has undergone a string of changes over the years, and in its current iteration functions as an online magazine (www.lipmag.com) and a quarterly print mag as well.

At Lip, we believe that there is more to life than, oh, we don’t know, make-up and relationships. We want to talk about what you think, not how you look; what you read, not what you wear; and what you say, not how you kiss.

As an independent magazine, Lip is run on a volunteer basis, and we print each issue using funds raised through events, promo drives, mag sales and donations. We’re in the process of finding a more sustainable way to publish Lip, but we don’t want to have to pause the magazine while we sort that out!

That’s why we need YOU!

Please donate to help us print the next issue of Lip, and keep the magazine alive. Issue 23 of Lip will feature a range of articles and essays on topics ranging from whether mp3s are better than cds, to where our definition of beauty comes from, to an interview with the Dandy Warhols, not to mention a whole lot more in between.

Printing Lip costs close to $2,500 each issue. We print the mag using an American printer called Createspace.

With the additional funds we raise through Pozible, we’re hoping to also pay our contributors for their work, and hold launch parties for the mag in Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney.

No donation is too small, so please consider pledging, and help keep Lip alive!
