Groupie Mag

groupie is a journal for fans who are moved by music - moved to talk about it; moved to connect it to something more, something personal; moved to make something new because of it. it’s a place for creatives of all kinds who are inspired by music, lyrics, musicians, each other as fans, and how the world is sculpted, changed, and made sweeter by all of those things.

ISSUE 003: MYTH

We need a myth
We need an amethyst bridge
We need a high hanging cliff
Jump, fall and lift
We can make it

who are we if not all of the music we love glued together and is that not its own mythology?

for our third issue, we want to be mesmerized. transported. immersed. send us your most spellbinding, curious legends and lore. play with the real and the fantastic. we want to be chased down the rabbit hole, into the dreamland, and water-colored alongside you onto the fairy tale’s pages.

as always, all creative work (prose, poetry, and visual art) should have a clear connection to the endlessly mythological world of music. speculate. challenge. suspend your disbelief with us. and will one of you please tell us: is avril lavigne alive or what?

what myths do you love? what are YOUR myths? shake out those foundational beliefs and stories. what creatures live inside them? are the old gods part of the play or are there new characters to debut? what songs score those scenes? does it all turn out right in the end?

let's craft an entirely new leatherbound mythology together and whisper it over and over until it transforms into issue 003.

xoxo team groupie

rachel, gloria, and kayla
