Midnight Muse Magazine is an Art & Literary Zine created by Neebinnaukzhik Southall and Sarah Zecchini in 2012. Our purpose was to extend a platform to incredible artists who didn’t otherwise know how to share their work, and to foster creative collaborations among artists of different mediums. It was a priority to make the zine FREE and AD FREE to truly show off the work of our contributors.
MMM was a resounding success - more than we anticipated, and far more than we were able to keep up with. We published 7 issues featuring artists of all kinds and we even hosted 2 Launch Parties, for the release of Issue 3 and Issue 6. We had live drawing, a photo-booth, belly dancing, live music, live painting, and a collaborative mural that was donated to a local art store for display - and we held art shows at local galleries for participating artists for a couple of the issues. We partnered with local organizations to raise money for their cause, and donated space in our issues for upcoming events, gallery receptions, and much more. ( p:ear and Sugar Does America, just to name a few) We also were very lucky to garner the support of our community, who gave us write ups in local newspapers and spread the word of MMM through posters, social media and their counter and wall space.
As MMM grew, and as life carved a separate path for us both, we decided to bring the success and excitement and vibrant color that is Midnight Muse to a close. It was definitely an experience, and one that I look back on very fondly. But who knows, perhaps one day we will re-launch - another thought for another day.
In the meantime, you can view and download each and every issue from our Magcloud for free. If you so wish, you may purchase a physical copy from Magcloud directly for cost of print.
