A view of the ocean from Freeport, ME – Summer 2009

For quite a few months now I’ve been brainstorming with Jesus Garay over a magazine idea that’s been sitting in my brain for over a year. Cram Magazine is the result of many months of planning, writing, rewriting, and a little bit of marketing.
The idea for the magazine started as a submission-driven arts and literary magazine that didn’t cater to one particular niche. I wanted a magazine that would entertain, inform, and inspire with content written by and for creative people who are looking for a magazine that offers something more. Niche magazines are great, don’t get me wrong – I get that if you’re a writer, it’s good to read about writing. Or if you’re a photographer, then a photography magazine would be informative. But sometimes the creative mind needs something more. Sometimes the photographer can get more inspiration by reading a short story than by looking at a photography magazine. It’s this cross-disciplinary creativity that I really wanted to capture in a magazine. Truly, something for everyone.
So, if you’re a writer, an artist, a photographer, an actor, a crafter, a designer, or a 9-to-5-er with a creative passion, we want you to submit your work to Cram.
Cram Magazine’s mission is to provide creatives of every persuasion with an original, un-pretentious magazine packed with intellectual, creative, and tactile brain candy from their peers.
