MEDIA KIT CONTENTS
Make/shift magazine creates and documents contemporary feminist culture and action by publishing journalism, critical analysis, and visual and text art. Made by an editorial collective committed to antiracist, transnational, and queer perspectives, make/shift embraces the multiple and shifting identities of feminist communities. We know there’s exciting work being done in various spaces and forms by people seriously and playfully resisting and creating alternatives to systematic oppression. Make/shift exists to represent, participate in, critique, provoke, and inspire more of that good work.
Make/shift is about action and cross-pollination, intersections and creative divergences. It's a magazine where you might find a photo essay on immigrant hotel workers in Los Angeles alongside a politicized short story, and a portrait of women's organizing in Costa Rica next to a personal essay about being an Arab American queer single mom.
We've published a diverse mix of emerging and established writers and artists, including brownfemipower, T Cooper, Sonali Kolhatkar, Amitis Motevalli, Lisa Factora-Borchers, Emily Roysdon, Erin Aubry Kaplan, Dean Spade, Heather Bowlan, Dorit Cypis, Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, Nomy Lamm, Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Masha Tupitsyn, Mia Mingus, Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, Tyrone Boucher, and Randa Jarrar—just to name a few.

We know we’re supposed to tell you how our readers shop so you’ll know if make/shift is the right place for your ad. And we do need your ad money. But the thing is, make/shift readers are as likely to create and critique as they are to consume. And when they do consume, they do it differently from each other. So, rather than market our readers, we thought we’d share our own spending habits as a representative sample:
Daria spends her money on vegetarian food and products, music, home stuff, indie and mainstream magazines, community-based orgs, cheese, wine, and clothes.
Jessica spends her discretionary dollars on
donations to social-justice projects; books and magazines
(especially those published independently or on small presses); and food.
