Happy March, reader!

Periodically, a call for donations to keep Shadow & Light Magazine and The Journal up-and-running is published. Well, that time is here, and I have a great deal that will only cost you just $10 annually. Subscribe to the magazine and you will have several ways you can choose to utilize your subscription for 6 bi-monthly PDF issues and a few bonuses!
1. Read it and enjoy it yourself
2. Read it, enjoy it and then pass it on to one friend
3. Don’t read it, don’t forward it, and you can just feel good about supporting the magazine

Myself and my very wonderful, hardworking staff of volunteers work very hard to put together an engaging magazine with compelling imagery and intriguing writing. More than half of those fine art photographers we publish are first-timers. In order to keep the ship on a somewhat straight course and out of the deep water we do need help. If you choose to give us a hand, it will be greatly appreciated.

If you want to help support Shadow & Light Magazine, click here, and you will be taken to our distributor to sign up for only $10. You can also scroll down to the promo card and see what we are planning this year.
