The Porch is born out of the idea that the best criticism of the bad is the practice of the better; that beauty is the antidote to fear and violence; and that a conversation is better than a lecture. It’s a community embodying creativity, hope, and peace of mind amid a noisy, depressing, dysfunctional media landscape.
The Porch lives in five ways:
Subscribers/members get access to every issue of The Porch magazine, and access to all back issues. There’s no outside advertising, and we are committed to paying our writers well – the more subscribers, the more we can share with writers. You can read the magazine here on our site, or download it to your computer or mobile device (Kindle, iBooks and other e-readers too); or even print it out if you prefer a paper copy.
Subscriptions are the source of The Porch's financial sustainability, and we're grateful to you for your support. We offer subscriptions to The Porch for $2.99 a month, or $25 annually. Many of our subscribers pay more than $2.99 a month as they are able, and we also offer free copies of the magazine to anyone who would otherwise not be able to afford it, (just contact us if you need a free copy).
We'd love to have you with us.
