Magazine Dreams & Cruel Realities

If you pay attention to this site at all, you’ve probably noticed that it’s gone through a few facelifts over the years. Some of that has been in an effort to make the content more readable while some has been merely aesthetic. What I’m after is that place that would help me bridge the gap between online and print.

To be perfectly honest, I’m not sure there’s a market for a print journal or a literary magazine. Maybe that’s being too pessimistic, but I see it as a risk I should calculate. And, as it is, I’m pretty happy being an online magazine with an aim of making the online reading experience as comfortable as possible.

If this process leads to anything more in the future, I’ll be the first to let you know. In the meantime, enjoy Scrutiny as it is. (It probably won’t stay this way long.) If you’d like to see what we already have in print, then check out our little black book.

Maybe the last word on this, for now, is that a Scrutiny magazine is as it has always been a dream.
