We want to be as transparent as possible about how we're working and what our goals are. Here is some information about what we're doing at Berm.

Our goal with Berm is to provide a platform for artists, writers, and creators, upcoming and established, and to showcase a broad and diverse view of contemporary art and design.

Berm is currently self-funded, but we are looking towards grants, sponsorships, and advertising to reduce our personal out-of-pocket costs.

We're estimating the first issue will cost $1,688.00 to produce.

Below are the rates we're currently able to pay. Our goal is to reach W.A.G.E. minimums by the end of our first year.

Commissioned New 4-page Work $400.00
Commissioned New Half-page work $100.00
Licenced Existing Piece $100.00/page
Short Piece (up to 400 words) $50.00
Medium Piece (600-800 words) $100.00
Long Piece (800-1000 words) $150.00

Our goal is to pay all contributors within 30 days of final acceptance of their work.
