Utah Crowd-Funding: Home and ‘Hearth’

This week’s Utah Crowd-Funding project believes in the power of print.

Two Utah sisters — writer Brenda Fisher and photographer Tonya Peterson — decided to start a magazine that highlighted their combined talents. After several years of preparation, they launched Hearth Magazine, a quarterly arts magazine, just over a year ago.

"Hearth Magazine is a place where stories are told," they write on the magazine’s website. "We love to feature artists and artisans that value the art of living and tradition, not the convenience of this modern world."

Printing a magazine — particularly a small printing run on high-quality paper — is expensive, though, so the sisters have taken to Kickstarter to raise $7,000.

So far, the campaign has raised $1,715 in pledges. The deadline is Sept. 12.

Benefits for backers range from a copy of the magazine (for $25) to a full-page ad (for $1,250).

If you have a crowd-funding project you’d like mentioned on The Cricket blog, email it to: spmeans@sltrib.com. Be sure to put "crowd funding" in the subject line.
