This magazine effort is simply trying to provide the written word that enhances social interaction and production on a community level. The first being, the foundation of the publication and eventual printing of a few copies to edit.
Our time outlined through the structure of weeks and weekends is maddening and beyond the business model of the coming year of 2013. The internet is vast with all the information that is possible, but with little to no organization. This magazine will attempt to collect stories relevant to Cleveland, Ohio and will include book excerpts, short stories, poems, news, restaurant and film reviews, and some other yet to be established topics. A goal like this is possible because so many of the readers will have submitted content to the magazine and therefore what they read will be a collection of people organized by an editing team. This is their initial note:
“For years the world has depended upon corporations for everything including news. Since the advent of the internet and social media interactions, there have been some attempts at creating an independent free publication for the people and by the people. This idea has been implemented before, but as soon as financial interests compounded the positions of government, the people no longer have a final say between the truth and what is commonly disseminated through newspapers, televisions, and even shaped communication by people through the internet. “It’s the death of journalism!” shouted every professor during college. Now that the present is here and people continue to move down the path that has proven before to lead to nothing more than circles around the chutes and ladders of corporate financial stability. The housing bubble should have proved to the world that money markets all end in collapse as one side topples the other in a world without heroes. Today, celebrities, politicians, media figures, and corporate executives take the spotlights even when they go out of style. Sure there are smaller groups that pop up now and then, some producing amazing creative feats that invites them into the next level with the decision makers. As soon as Bob Dylan reached those tables of back patters and certificates of appreciation, he in a drunken slur, told them all that they were old and he was young. Cryptic as ever, the facts remain behind those who control society from a financial point of view. The problem’s come when the financial decision makers interact with societal decision makers, especially in America these days.”
All of the above is part of the draft content and is subject to revision for the physical version of Paper Campfire. Please take your time to think on what you would like to include in this production because it is part yours.
