Ripe magazine

Last thursday evening I attended the launch party at The Lamplighter for the current issue of Ripe Magazine. Ripe is a Vancouver-based project that began as a web publication to showcase the work of mostly BC-based, up and coming writers and photographers. This issue features, among others, the photography of Danny Singer, and Grace Gordon-Collins, with written work by David Mount, and (Beyond Robson’s) Degan Beley.

It was interesting to have the opportunity at the launch party to chat with Rachel Boguski, Managing Editor of Ripe, and hear about the struggles of trying to develop a small publication. The magazine is a non-profit venture, and all work is done through the efforts of volunteers. The project is a labour of love for those involved, and they hope to build Ripe into something larger to showcase local talent to the world. Now isn’t that something worth supporting?

For writers and photographers interested in submitting to the magazine, please see the guidlines. The current theme is “Break” and the deadline is April 7. There is a $10 fee for photographic submissions (and don’t give them any flack about it!) The magazine can be purchased for the price of $6.95 at Beau Photo, The Vancouver Art Gallery, Sophia Books among others. Check the website for the full list.
