Hello SheWrites Community! I'm an editor at Vela Magazine--an online publication of creative nonfiction and longform journalism written by women.

We started three years ago to address the gender byline gap by providing a space for women writers. We've just launched our first Kickstarter campaign, and we're hoping to raise $25,000 by the end of September so that we can start paying our writers. I'd love your help in spreading the word to your own writing communities, on social media, etc.

Vela has had essays mentioned as notables in the Best American series, has been featured on Longform.org, mentioned on the New Yorker Blog and in Vanity Fair, among other accolades. Not only is this for a good cause--bringing more women writers to the publishing world--but it's chock full of fantastic rewards from donating. Nab a subscription to Scratch or The Atavist, get a copy of a signed book, receive writing and manuscript advice, get a week at a writing retreat, and much much more. Here's the link to the campaign:https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/594960667/vela-magazine-nonfiction-written-by-women

Thank you so much for your support in paying women writers, and for helping spreading the word!
