ITEM OF THE DAY Item of the Day: The Fog Horn App Chrissa Hardy

It doesn’t matter if I’m reading a book, watching a TV show, or scrolling through my Instagram feed – if I come across a captivating story, I become locked into it. That’s what’s so amazing about storytellers. You can truly exit whatever is happening in the present, and enter a completely new world.

The Fog Horn Magazine understands the magical power of storytelling and wants to deliver brilliantly-told stories right to you. They are a new fiction magazine for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The Fog Horn publishes curated short stories, delivered right to Newsstand. Four stories a month, twelve issues a year. They publish Hollywood writers and new voices, culled from public submissions. Published alongside one another, they offer quality short fiction from all genres, well-written stories to be devoured on the subway, in bed, on the treadmill, or in front of the fire.

They fund their business entirely through subscriptions, at $3.99 a month, or $1 a story.  So every subscription counts. No ads, no venture capital.

And this is how they take care of their writers:

Do you pay your writers?

You’re damn right, we do. We pay $1000 for published stories: peanuts to fancy authors, but honest milk money to baby writers. Nobody pays for great writing anymore. We think that sucks.

Lastly — they give 5% of their net revenue to 826LA, a local non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write.
