Keep Quail Bell Magazine alive as a 501c3!
Quail Bell Magazine has existed in its current form as a project of Quail Bell Press & Productions, LLC. since September 2011. So, for a little bit more than a year, The Quail Bell Crew has established a track record. We've regularly updated the website, produced two issues of our print 'zine, Quail Bell Express, hosted original events, tabled at 'zine festivals, and even created an iPhone app. Now we're hoping to grow our online presence and build more of a community around Quail Bell--as a 501c3 non-profit project of Quail Bell Press & Productions, LLC.
Right now we're looking into grant programs and large-scale fundraising options that would allow Quail Bell Magazine to be a sustainable publication dedicated to the imaginary, the nostalgic, and the otherworldly. Grants would allow Quail Bell Magazine to (among other things):
• Update the website with new and original content everyday
• Fund longer, more elaborate content, such as investigative pieces
• Add more multimedia to the website
• Reach out to more artists, writers, journalists, and other content creators from across the globe
• More regularly produce print projects (without having to rely on Kickstarter or IndieGoGo all the time!)
• Host events more often--maybe even every month!
• Organize efforts to benefit community art, historic preservation, and folklore studies projects
• Pay The Quail Bell Crew a fair stipend for all of their hard work!
• Pay contributors a fair fee for their amazing submissions!
In order to have the most access to grants, Quail Bell Magazine is shooting for non-profit (501c3) status in 2013. That would make all of your donations to Quail Bell tax-deductible! In order to even be considered for 501c3 status by the IRS, however, we must pay a $300 fee. Please help us reach that goal! Donations of any size are appreciated.
Thank you so much for your donation! Please spread the word so that we can spread our wings!

Welcome to our staff blog, where you can learn more about The Quail Bell Crew.
Christine Stoddard conceived the idea for Quail Bell in late 2009 after writing a children's story by the same name, and launched the website as a college blog in 2010. In June 2013, Christine and former art director Kristen Rebelo officially launched Quail Bell Magazine as a global web magazine. Read our editorial mission statement to learn more.
