On June 1, six writers at GOOD magazine were fired. Two others resigned. Essentially, the magazine’s editorial team was dismantled after just one year. Ann Friedman, former GOOD editor (and, incidentally, creator of The Best Tumblr Page In The Universe, #realtalk from your editor) says, “If there’s one thing I’m disappointed about, it’s that this hardworking and accomplished group of writers and editors never got to realize its full potential.” (More backstory here.)
So, the good people from GOOD are regrouping and creating a new journalistic project. It’s called Tomorrow, it’s going to be a “four-color, 100-page oversized magazine filled with stories about the future,” and it’s going viral on Kickstarter as I type — in fact, the project is already fully funded, just eight hours after it was launched. But if there’s one thing a magazine needs to started, it’s MO’ MONEY. (We know.) So throw a clam or two their way, if you’ve any to spare. If you are very generous, Ann Friedman will illustrate a life event of your choosing in GIFs! Plus, THERE ARE TOTE BAGS TO BE HAD.
