Hey You! Rural Punk! We are creating a magazine just for us, the rural punks, back to the land skids, backwoods anarchists, etc! The Country Grind is a smokin’ new quarterly magazine specifically for those folks who have ran away from the cities in search of a simpler, saner, and more fulfilling life. All content is written by fellow rural punks and is intended for a rural punk audience. Whether you live in a small town, deep in the bush, on a farm in the prairies, or tucked away in the mountains. Whether you’re on grid or off. A vegan gardener or a hunter/trapper. You’re a lone wolf or you’ve got a spouse and kids. As long as you’re a punk* and you don’t live in a city, this magazine is for you.
We are currently looking for contributors and subscribers. We need rural punk contributors to write articles, create artwork, and help with organizing responsibilities. We’ll happily except any articles relevant to an alternative rural audience. Some upcoming articles include Reclaiming Childbirth in Rural Communities; Rural Isolation and Mental Health; DIY Oil Changes; and Adventures In Permaculture.
As far as artwork, we’re looking for pretty much anything relevant. Big or small. Full page artwork or little doodles. This isn’t some boring manifesto by some dead European beardo. This is Punk! This is Art! Let’s make it look beautiful!
The deadline for the first issue is Dec. 6Th, and I hope to have it shipped out to subscribers by the winter solstice (Dec. 21st).
The first issue (and hopefully all subsequent issues) will be 100% free to all small towns and rural addresses. City punks will have to pay, but prices are reasonable ($3-5 ppd)
If you’d like to contribute, sign up to receive the first issue, or if your interested in placing an ad (cheap ad space!) contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re a city punk and you’d like to buy a copy you can do so at: countrygrind.blogspot.com
Can’t wait to hear from you!

*We’re using the word “punk” very loosely, we mean it in a way that includes any folks that are living there lives in a D.I.Y. way, are battling the status quo, and have some level of disdain for authority.
