Help Keep Orion Ad-free

artwolfe_orionmag_jan2012At Orion we use every square inch of every page for words and images. We explore the relationship between people and nature, seek answers to the crises and confusion of life on a rapidly changing planet, celebrate the natural world and all its strange and wonderful creatures, and present ideas for a more peaceful relationship between nature and culture.

You won’t find:

large appliances
dental products
custom cabinet solutions
miracle cleaners
cruise and travel offers

That’s because at Orion we don’t squeeze writing and art into the space that’s left over after all the ads have been sold—we use all the space we have for the things you love about Orion. Nothing’s being crammed in or compromised; nothing’s being cut to make room for the next big thing in consumer marketing.

No magazine can live on subscriptions alone. At a typical magazine, advertising dollars cover 70 percent of what it costs to publish. At Orion, we look for readers’ support instead. When you donate, you help keep Orion ad-free and independent.

You help Orion continue to be a place where writers, artists, poets, and photographers delve creatively into environmental, cultural, scientific, and spiritual concerns.

Your support ensures that Orion can continue to be the magazine you want it to be.
