Our inaugural digital magazine is coming, hop on the train if you want your articles to be featured
Winston: I have previously announced Project DigiMag, which is our push toward our dream of publishing a digital magazine — to commemorate the one-year anniversary of CT that is approaching in September.
Winston: I have done up several cover designs so far and below is one of them. But none are satisfactory thus far.
Winston: Many readers have voiced their interest to be part of this journey, so besides involving my editors in this magazine project, I have decided to open up to all CT writers who want to participate.
Call for Help
We have created a new column named “DigiMag” and we are calling on all CT writers who wish to contribute to our inaugural magazine to submit your ideas and jointly contribute toward this project. Below are the areas we need help on for the moment.
If you are a graphic designer and hope to help us design the cover of our inaugural magazine we would like to invite you to do up a sample design and submit it as an article to Coffee Times for publication.
Other than requesting you to feature our brand name — Coffee Times, plus the design must carry the feel of coffee and our anniversary celebration, you have a free hand to decide the picture, fonts, theme, and layout.
If we like your design we will get in touch with you to work on the final design of our magazine and bring you on board as our graphic designer for the entire magazine. If you need further clarification, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What we are looking for as our main feature;
An inspiring story about yourself, your pain, and most importantly your healing and recovery with a little mention of how CT was part of it.
An encouraging story about your life, your dream, and your self-development journey plus a little mention of how CT was part of it.
Fun stories about your love for coffee (the beverage and not our publication) and how it helps with your reading, writing, and general lifestyle.
Article on the technicality of how to enjoy a nice cup of coffee, from choosing the right coffee beans to the proper preparation process and the things to eat with it.
If we like your article(s) we will get in touch with you to work on a new story for exclusive publication in our magazine.
What we are looking for in our Anniversary section;
Shortform (<150 words) articles — Words of encouragement, support, and gratitude that you have for CT and our editors.
There may be more categories added in the future so do check back regularly for updates.
We plan to select a handful of articles from the published pool under the Digimag column for a feature in our magazine.
Points to note.
To have your articles enter into the DigiMag column, you will have to use two tags; the First is the usual “Coffee Times Movement” tag, and; the Second is our unique “CT-DigiMag” tag. Once your article is published with these two tags, it will enter automatically into our DigiMag column.
By using our “CT-DigiMag” tag, you agree to allow CT to publish your article in Coffee Times Digital Magazine. You also agree to subject your article(s) to further editing by our Magazine editor for final publication in our Digital Magazine.
We will not give additional compensation for selected articles because this is strictly a commemorative and inaugural issue to mark CT’s anniversary.
Winston: In addition to the call for design and articles, I also hope to reach out to anyone who has experience in publishing a digital magazine to be our advisor. Please either email me at email@example.com or drop a comment below if you are keen to lend us your support and if we find you suitable we will bring you on board as our project advisor.
Winston: I have a lot of questions without answers but I am not allowing that to stop me from pushing this forward.I hope you could help me figure them out along the way. If there is anything unclear that you need clarification on, please feel free to drop a comment below or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If I don’t have the answers I hope we can work it out together.
Winston: I have formed a working committee below and tagged the following people because you have left a comment on my earlier article about contributing to this project. If your name is not on it yet but you would like to be part of this journey, simply drop a comment below and your name will be added to the committee and you will be tagged every time we need to discuss this project.
Come join us on this journey, I believe it will be messy but I also think it will be a lot of fun.
