About the Project

Those who pay attention to these matters know that it isn't easy as a young and unknown author, artist, poet to get yourself noticed. There is a wide gulf between high school magazines and getting published by a major publishing house, filled with only by a handful of literary magazine and the risky business of self-publication.

Skandali is an attempt to remedy this situation, to provide further options especially for the young and adventurous. The idea is to publish a cheap, but well edited literary magazine that would sell for just enough to cover expenses. In particular we want to welcome the unconventional, the weird, the experimental, especially when produced by those who have yet to make a name for themselves.

More than that, the long term goal is to get people like that on board and create a collective of creative individuals. The editorial board would thus be subject to regular to change, and everyone who wants to participate in some fashion will be welcome to do so in whatever way is possible each time. We also plan to host regular public readings, and hopefully also form more intimate discussion and appreciation groups that could meet 1-2 a month. In short, this is about more than publishing a paper.

When it comes to material we plan to publish all kinds of textual works, as well as drawings and other art. Poetry, articles, short stories, microfiction, serial stories, short plays, cultural critiques, and all manner of experimental and fragmentary stuff that blurs all lines. Also we will seek to publish in other languages than Icelandic, the only requirement being that we can arrange a proof-reading. Additionally we will make particular effort to read through and provide advice for all would-be contributors, even when we feel publication to be impossible for now.

In light of the expenses involved in physical publication we are relying on advertisements, grants and other means of raising funds to secure the basis for the first issues, in the hope that sales revenues will go some way towards maintaining the project from there on. The first step is this current project, here at Karolinafund. We are relying on you to make the first issue possible. All those who contribute even the smallest amount will get their name on a list of supporters in the first issue and are invited to come to the release party and get to know us better.

How this Works

Skandali is a cooperative project open to all. The only requirement being that those participating contribute something, be it material, helping to proof-read, arranging for advertisements, selling issues, delivering, etc. The editors at each time will handle management and select material for each issue but the plan is that in due course new people will come in as others step aside, thus renewing the editorial team continuously.
