I would really like any thoughts/comments on e-zines vs print zines. I made Sein und Werden a web zine for financial reasons, and to reach a larger/international audience. However, there are many people, myself included, who prefer to read on paper rather than on screen, and I am re-considering turning Sein into a print format again. Possibly alongside the web version. I’m caught between wanting an attractively presented, easily accessible printed literary journal, and having very little funds. It’s about getting the writing out there, without it looking like a junior school project. I want to give people a reason to want to buy the thing, but have something available on the web too. Do you have any preferences/thoughts? Do writers prefer submitting to something tangible? Do other editors find the cost of printing too high?
